Spent the day doing #streetphotography downtown #ATL in the #fairliepoplar district with my new friends celebrating National Black Female Photographers Day. I had an awesome time- God is good! Learn a lot, networked with folks who share this love of mine and who knows what will come of this meeting…whatever it is I’m ready for it. #nbfpd #blackfemalephotogs #823photography2013

The Big Building on Walton Street, downtown Atlanta

Love. Love. Love this Walton Street building.

After I posted this pic, a downtown neighbor sent me a great photo of what the third floor looked like in 1903. I’ve added that above.

According to the caption on the photo, this was called the Big Building at the time and the office was used as a mail order business for a local product called Dr. Blosser’s Catarrh Cure (Catarrh is an old word for respiratory problems, now referred to commonly as rhinitis). 

I’ve also included an ad from that era for the product. I love living in a place with so much interesting history.

U.S. Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit, 56 Forsyth St., Atlanta, GA. Renaissance Revival / Beaux Arts style, 1911. Originally a U.S. Post Office. || #weloveatl #atlanta #atl #instaatlanta #atlantacollective #placesyougoinatl #igersatlanta #igersatl #igersga #atlantaga #atlantageorgia #architecture #beauxarts #preserveatl #preservation #historicpreservation #blackandwhite #bw #bnw #atlblackandwhite #fairliepoplar #facade (at United States Court Of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit)

South & east faces of 55 Marietta, a mammoth building looming on Forsyth St. Many people find it ugly but it’s grown on me over the years. I’ve been inside and it had amazing 1950s elevators. Due to ridiculously thick floors and access to big “pipes,” now mostly a telecom hotel. || #weloveatl #atlanta #atl #instaatlanta #atlantacollective #placesyougoinatl #igersatlanta #igersatl #igersga #atlantaga #atlantageorgia #downtownatl #downtownatlanta #fairliepoplar #behemoth #architecture #bauhaus (at 55 Marietta Street Building)
