The skyline. Anyone who follows me on this blog or on social media knows I like to capture city skylines. With that I got excited starting the A Million Skyline Looks series.
Toronto, Chicago, Auckland and now it is Atlanta’s turn. The unofficial capitol of the South has distinct skylines in both Midtown and Downtown.
Photo opportunities to capture both from parks, bridges, high up-top sky rises and from right out on the open road (as a passenger of course) have presented themselves, along with many more. Coming up with a million skyline looks of a place I’ve lived in and visited a lot is easy. Well without further ado:
Eat a burger from this ATL institution, the Varsity, while capturing the city.
Sometimes random Atlanta city skyline shots just present themselves.
Head to the park behind the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood.

My favorite place to capture the ATL skyline is the 17th Street Bridge, my peaceful place.
Many, many, many lanes heading into the city from the 17th Street Bridge.
What other spots would you recommend capturing the Atlanta skyline from?
