As promised, I continue publishing my “Atlanta Chronicles”, the series of photographs taken in my second hometown Atlanta. Today I post a set of photos related to the tallest buildings of Atlanta, photos of Atlanta skyscrapers or taken from the skyscrapers. I start with one of my favorites, a photo of Atlantic Station neighborhood in the beginning of its construction, taken on April 24, 2004. Today it is hard to recognize the west-side area of I-75 highway. The only building in the photo is the current WellsFargo high-rise, which has its initial sign ‘SouthTrust’ installed (later changed to ‘Wachovia’ and ‘WellsFargo’).

Thanks, Natasha! I also like 3 and 4 the most. It may take other 10 years to photograph all of these from the street looking up :)
Wow, the Bank of America Plaza is super high, I guess it’s even higher than the Macau Tower I saw yesterday. As always, Black and White photos rule.
Yes, Agness, it is pretty high – 317 m (1,040 ft). In 1992 it was the 9th tallest building in the world, and 6th tallest building in the United States. It is still the tallest building in the USA outside of Chicago and New York City.

There’s certainly a lot of development in Atlanta then, Alex. Well shown here. My favourite is the Instagram shot!

Thanks, Andrew. I took Instagram photo of Downtown Atlanta from SunDial restaurant in April. We’ll go there when you are in Atlanta ;)
These are fantastic! I really love the “Capital of the South” photo! Also making me crave that hot, hot, hot Hotlanta weather you guys must be having right now!;-)

Thanks, Jess. The weather here in Atlanta is not that HOT at all this year. We had a late winter. So the spring is cool this year. An open pool in my subdivision is not open yet. It has never happened before… Normally people are tanning there in late April/early May. Today is May 20th! Global warming, I guess :)
My how things do change!
I love Atlanta – so much history, culture, arts and a lot of amazing architecture (new and old).
I highly recommend a stroll through the botanical gardens.
