@Style: I have a question. I noticed you take lots of pictures, so you naturally have to place lots of (C) insignias.
Do you have some special means of doing this quickly? Currently, the method I use takes forever. Any advice?

much thanks, pwright1. :)

@ matt - no. as of now i resize, edit, and add the copyright to every photo - one at a time. it takes a while, but i really dont mind. taking photos and having fun with them is what i do. :D

Great pictures.

Did you know that the mini Westin Peachtree look-a-like that belongs to Hyatt, was actually a prototype John Portman built before building the Westin Peachtree and Marriott Renaissance in Detroit?

Extremely original takes on some great buildings and scenes. The first photo is my favorite however; a great photo of such a commonly viewed subject--escalators.

I love the photos of the major skyscrapers. And I think that the skywalk in front of the Westin Peachtree illuminates the dropping sun perfectly, together with the thin vertical reflection on the Westin and the glowing street!! A triple whammy!

Dude I hate that MARTA escalator. I think the only one steeper in the country is the Dupont Circle D.C. Metro stop. But great pics! I also liked the Marriot lobby pic- that's my 2nd favorite elevator ride in Atlanta (Westin elevator to Sundial restaurant best). That could be another thread.

really makes me miss Atlanta. Atlanta was my home for almost 10 years. I didn't go downtown so these photos make downtown ATL seem very different than what i often remembered. Nice photos man! Keep em' comin'.
