Atlanta Overload, Part One

I was lucky enough to spend the start of the New Year (Jan 2nd anyway) in Atlanta and what a wonderful city it turned out to be. Unfortunately, for me, the day I was in Atlanta also happened to be something like the coldest day there in like five years! It barely reached 30° and was about 15° with windchill, a little out of the norm for a boy from California. But, I trudged along nevertheless and was able to take an enormous amount of pictures. I hope you enjoy!

Atlanta at 6 AM















Driving down Peachtree











The view from my hotel room!













































City condos starting at 180Ks?!? Unheard of in SF!

















Cranes, cranes, and more cranes...



...the ever expanding Midtown skyline



















Who is that man?







Hey it's me..









Proof of the frigid conditions













A little of downtown pops into view















A reminder of home...











Ok, I am still in Georgia, right?











I've never even seen one of these in San Francisco...







Midtown is call me back...





Downtown demands notice too!



















This is only Midtown!











































Part Two
