Live from ATL: Ciao, baby.

The Fox was decorated ever so tastefully, but it was the same old wonderful Fox and being able to see it in all it’s splendor.

It is always sad to say goodbye, especially the night going. But these live blogs, mean I don’t have to go home and start all over again. I have been waiting to finish Paris and Peru, and I won’t even talk about those wonderful shots of Cappadocia. For a person who works where he lives, I sure move around a lot. But it is all so different and even more so wonderful. Atlanta is progressive in look, has problems with homeless and great for localized food.

Shots from the Atlanta History Center and at the Carter Center.

The Fox is a great reflection of a city which has so much history, but which seems to have lost so much of it. Is the past so painful that you want to do it in, or is it the lower Southern air. So much of it is “modern,” interesting because it is both highrise and lowrise, sometime suprisingly together like no other city. Except for DC, which is like a fairyland of those post-modern structures which have absolutely the minimal of character, Atlanta’s steel and glass still do. The 9th largest metropolitan area in the U.S. has a similarity of space that its Civil War structures in the b/w shot does.

We ended the evening with Doc Chey’s Noodle House in the Virginia Highland/Morningside area of town.

What I appreciate the most about Atlanta is a big city and a smaller city atmosphere. And the five million people who do great on food. Thanks.
