    I need to put something up on my walls. I'm not much for art, so I've decided to make some poster prints of diff things/locations around Atlanta

    what should I take pics of? and where can I get a good angle/view of the skyline?

    If you get a chance to sneak up onto the helicopter pad at Grady, it affords a great shot of four major buildings all in a row, and great sunset shots of Atlanta.

    Just to give you an idea of what you can see.


    The Varsity, The Fox, Turner Field, Daddy D'z, Grady (and all the bums around that area), homeless folks, business folks, architecture galore. Seriously, you're not hurting for subjects in Atlanta.

    In for this.

    I'm moving back to Atlanta in a month or so and would love to have some options on where to shoot some nice skyline shots.

    I hitched a ride on the bird. I'm in Fire/EMS for a couple of metro-Atlanta counties, which allows me to ride third (fourth, really) with Emory Flight.

    The pilot, Orlin, made waffles that morning. Right before this call, I had been riding with a different pilot doing confined space landings and emergency drills. I had thrown up Reese's and pancake syrup in a ziploc bag. Then we landed, I immediately got on the bird in the picture above, and we took a lady with a separated sternum to Grady.
