Festival of Lights Season in Atlanta, 2012
Not so much going on in the way of festive lights out on the streets. But today we picked up a small Frazier Fir, and while it didn’t look all that fantastic in the tree lot (the people selling were nice and helpful), it turns out, once decorated, to be a wonderful tabletop tree for celebrating the upcoming winter solstice, filling the living room of the apartment with colorful light reflecting off baubles and paper snowflakes. Our fifteen-year-old son, as with the previous two years, took pride in decorating the tree himself (except for the lights), relying on us for encouragement and a steady stream of sugar cookies. As ever, he did a fantastic job.
He opted to sleep under its colorful lights tonight.

The Briarcliff on Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA

Built in 1924 by a real estate firm owned by Asa G. Candler Jr., son of the Coca-Cola magnate, the Briarcliff (now the Briarcliff Summit) was a luxury apartment building of 200 units designed by G. Lloyd Preacher, the designer of Atlanta’s City Hall. With the 1929 stock market crash, the Briarcliff’s apartments were subdivided into 400 units with the conversion of the building to a commercial hotel.
The Briarcliff Summit is on the National Register of Historic Places.

191 Peachtree Tower, Atlanta, Georgia
191 Peachtree Tower in Atlanta’s downtown on an October late afternoon in 2007. 50 stories, completed in 1990. I’ve pulled out some photos from that shoot I never bothered to work on before and have also some nice pics of the work going on at the time in the building of Atlantic Station.
