Atlanta's High Museum
Photograph - Photo
Atlanta's High Museum of Art is not just a museum. As you can tell, even the building itself it a work of architectural art. And I think quite honestly my visit here in high school was my first real confrontation with true modern architecture. The lines of the building inside and out made a long-lasting impression on me.
Atlanta is truly lucky to have such a world-class museum, definitely one of Peachtree Street's leading landmarks! I took this particular photo on a long stroll down that very street during my last week living in the city, sort of a farewell tour. For those who are camera savvy, this was taken with a fisheye lens - I love the exaggerated lines and distances that this type of lens offers, and in particular in this photo the way it creates a feeling that all of the lines in the image are converging on the museum itself.
