My Ongoing Atlanta Photo Thread

This will be a catch all thread for all of my continuing Atlanta photos. I have hundreds upon hundreds.

Let’s start off with some stitched together pans.
















Sorry they were shrunk down in size! What a waste!

Cool thread. My good friend in NYC is moving down there soon. Maybe I'll get a chance to see the ATL!

Nice pics. Haven't been to Atlanta outside of the airport. But it's got to be a challenge to photograph the lowest density major city in America for an urban forum!

Atlanta is only low density (relatively speaking to Boston and San Fran) because of its lack of a grid street system and its hills/bad terrain. Where there are buildings it's not very low density at all. Some of the intown areas have densities of 10,000+ people per square mile over relatively large areas (thinking Midtown, West Midtown, Edgewood Historic District/Bedford Pines, Lower Fourth Ward, Inman Park, Cabbagetown, etc etc).

Also, Atlanta has really thick tree coverage, so combine that with the hills and it's difficult to really see how built up Atlanta is. It's not difficult to photograph the skylines, though! Very few cities in America have as many highrises scattered all over as Atlanta does (maybe 7-8 other cities have as many highrises all over).

Wow, it looks like a very green city (at least, I see lots of trees ). Nice skyscrapers too.
Is that a mosque on one of the first pictures?

It's got the thickest tree coverage of any major metro in America, I believe. It makes it difficult to see just how big Atlanta really is, but it helps with smog in the summertime (kinda ).

Yes, that is a mosque.

Do you have some pictures of the streets. I wonder what they look like with all those trees.
