Two skylines.

Atlanta seen from midtown in 2017 and 1979. Photos by me.

I should say that the topmost image is from three years ago, before another spate of building. You probably couldn’t see downtown from this spot now. (Also, the Georgia Dome is now gone.)

And if you pulled back—further north—about a half-mile, the forest of midtown buildings would make the center of Atlanta seem somehow secondary.

This is also an indication of why I vastly prefer digital to film. The detail, the detail.
