My Peachtree Street: A Tea For Two That Never Happened

 

If Peachtree Street keeps developing at the current speed, many of my pictures in this series will acquire historic value fairly soon. :)

I meant to visit this cute tiny restaurant located off the street for quite some time, but there was always something on the way. When finally I did, the door was closed. "We're out of business" a crooked sign lamently read. The area was up for redevelopement. 

If you are thinking about taking your friend to lunch, or for a cuppa coffee to a special place, do not procrastinate: one day you will find out that it's too late.

the stories behind your photos give them more value and dimension
vz-nostalgia: Glad you think so. I often consider a story as an integral part of my picture.
great B&W!

lovely composition, I like the crossing lines of railing and facade!
vz-nostalgia: That was the main reason I took the picture, ttomasso. smile
Clean concept, so architectural that it gaves me goosebumps. I used to take similar pictures with a really high architectural undertone.
I simply love it. Oh and I'm all over the pictures that has a really strange crop or you dont see everything horizontal and vertical but rather has some own system. So yeah this is definitely awesome.

vz-nostalgia: You're absolutely right, Susan. Our architectural background has huge influence on how we see things. A trained sense of composition and color palette, a search for meaning in the images, like a search for meaning in the spaces we design... No doubt, our vision as architects is different from the one of the professional photographers. Not better or worse, just different. I guess it's pretty evident on Nostalgia. smile
