When I first started writing my blog back in 2007, I saw all these picture on posts. Some of them you could tell were “stock” photos, or they were cartoon in nature. And I read where you should have your camera with you all the time, you never know when you might find a great picture that could be the source of a blog!
So, now I do just that. I’ve built up such a library of pictures that I honestly have a hard time keeping track of them and where they are filed. It’s not uncommon for me to spend 20-30 minutes looking for a certain picture I KNOW I have! I’m doing it partly because Midtown Atlanta is changing SO fast, that you forget what was there a couple years ago! Take these two pictures…the far left is 1010Midtown as it was coming up, and the other is close to topping out! Amazing!
I’ve lived in Atlanta for some 16 plus years now…..and have watched it grow! We seem to make the news quite often for our traffic…and true…it’s getting to be challenging! For those of us that work in the condominium markets of Midtown and Buckhead, it just makes our marketplace, that much better since you can live Intown, and not have the hour+ commute each way! UGH!
Anyway, I thought I’d just share a few pictures to show you where The Thom And Ray Team hangout! Enjoy!
Atlanta’s Backstreet, one of only 3 places in the U.S that was a 24-Hour club (oh I remember it well and miss it as well….)
Made way for progress, and was replaced by Viewpoint!
But Midtown still has the charm it once had, as you can see from St. Marks Methodist Church!
And lastly, here is a “time wharp” of two pictures that really tell it all!
1968 — to today! Wow! We’ve Come Along Way Baby!!
