The Chorus Line

 

I wonder if the architect saw them?

40 Marietta St, Five Points Plaza, Atlanta, GA, built in 1964.


Speaking of chorus line, Robin from NYC arrives tomorrow and stays till Saturday.

Happy weekend!  See you again on Monday.

Not quite what I was expecting after seeing the title. Very nice shot and I like the processing.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Probably not what anyone was expecting, Michael. grin Thanks.

that's beautiful architecture, nicely captured! grin
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Rian, It looks totally different when you look at it from another angle, of course. smile

Beautiful picture. Love the treatment, good choice of the B&W.
Love the clouds.
Great angle. It was great to walk the downtown Atlanta and see all those beautiful buildings. I think the architect can see 3D.
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad it was YOUR idea to do the Downtown Atlanta tour because even I saw things I had never seen after living in the area for 25 years. THANK YOU.

This is curious architecture Ginnie. Have a good time with Robin!
Ginnie Hart: Downtown Atlanta is a "museum" of architecture, Chris, albeit modern. You'd be amazed. Thanks.
I can see it Ginniegrin... great imaginative shot and well named....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Peter, to "see" things, isn't it! grin Thanks.

Clever Ginnie - title and picture so unusual
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. This was fun. I'm such a fan of architecture, you know. smile
very cool shot, and i like the black and white treatment of it, kinda alien smile and about the RV? yes i'm serious lol
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. Downtown Atlanta is a goldmine for interesting architecture!

Congrats on the RV. So, where are you going first, I wonder?! smile
Great image ... rubbish title {grin}
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, I guess we can't have it all, then, can we! Thanks, Richard.
I'd like to skip the line and get my loan approved, zero interest. But that's a cool angle.
Ginnie Hart: Ahhhh, details, Michael. grin I wish you success. Thanks.
Wow...amazing structure and perspective! Fantastic image!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
The Tiller girls! ( you'll have to Google that) By 60's standards this isn't a bad building. The photograph is excellent.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Yes, indeed, Bill (after a Google search!). How fun. Thanks.

A magnificent photograph of a grandious modern architecture -yes, Atlanta is famous for its impressive architecture!
Een heel fijn weekeinde toegewenst!
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt on both counts, Philine!
fantasic picture - really like the perspective and the B&W
Ginnie Hart: Thank you so much, Sarah, for stopping by and commenting here. WELCOME TO SC!
Fantastic angle shooting. Congratulations Ginnie, a beautiful black and white
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Marie. Merci.

Now I do like this Ginnie, what a dynamic angle you have caught it at. I also like the gentle grey that you have afforded it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
Is this the GA answer to Casa Mila?!
I love fanciful buildings.
Because I day dream a lot, G. ;o)
Ginnie Hart: You'd love downtown Atlanta, LC. It's full of wonders like this! smile Thanks.

Isn't it amazing what we can 'see' thru our lenses..when we change our points of view?

My guess is - not. That the architect never imagined his grand design would be construed as someone else's chorus line.

What fun!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Marcie. Perspective really is everything, isn't it! Thank you, as always. We'll say HI to Robin for you. smile
Swinging legs indeed! I love your association of images.
Ginnie Hart: Some things you just can't get out of your head once you first see them, Wim. grin Bedankt.

A cracking shot. The like the recession on the curves.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. This one was fun after I saw it on the big screen. smile
Superb composition with an excellent framing. Détail and texture are very nice. It's a great photo. I like it. Have a lovely day Ginnie. Amicalement Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Antoine. Merci.
Well seen Ginnie! I like it smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
Wonderful photograph, fantastic architecture. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Zielona. I love this kind of architecture, even though I am drawn more to the older buildings of Europe. Dziękujemy.

One can wonder whether the architect had this detail view in mind, when designing. Enjoy your weekend.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to imagine what was in his mind, Louis. smile Thanks.
A very good b&w study, super tonal range.
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, John. Thank you.
Greta angle Ginnie, and excellent monochrome.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Haha, what fun when your eye projects a different image of an object to your brain, Ginnie. Shooting the building from this angle was a great idea.

Enjoy your weekend with Robin!
Ginnie Hart: Don't you just love how our brain plays tricks on us, Beverly. smile THANK YOU.
Very nice pattern shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindlt, Navin.
He probably thought of nothing else, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I love it, Tom. grin Thanks.

Lovely capture, rather than a chorus line I saw lots of fingers on a fretboard of some stringed instrument smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I saw that, too, Anne. smile Thanks.

A splendid piece of modern architecture and shot from a very creative angle. Nothing like a good knees up!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. As you see, I love architecture, too. smile
It's just a fantastic shot Ginnie, and you were right to go mono as it reveals shapes, lights and shadows. A very talented and inspired photograph Ginnie dear. Hope you have a great week-end. I'm so busy at the moment, can't post during the week... :-[
Ginnie Hart: You're such a sweetheart, Flo. Merci. We were busy all weekend with a girlfriend from NYC and had a blast with her, showing off the Netherlands. smile
Yes excellent photo!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland. Merci.
Ha, great spot Ginnie! Love the legs, woo whoo!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to "see" what we see, Doug, right?! smile Thanks.
nice perspective and a different looking building smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Joshi. When you come down to it, I like all kinds of architecture...just like all kinds of photography. smile
Very good shot. Works so well in B and W. Love the geometry. The chorus line analogy is very apt.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, David. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
Lovely photo! They looks like fingers to me though or metallic tentacles lol!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, fingers, too, Charles, playing an instrument! smile Thanks.
Busby Berkeley would love this line of "legs!"
Ginnie Hart: Awww. That would be nice. Thanks, Patrushka!

Was just reading your main blog about your trip to downtown Atl...love your brick from the olympics! Your walking tour was nearly identical to mine when I was there a couple of years ago. I toured CNN, walked from there to the aquarium (one of the best!) and toured the Coca Cola factory/museum. I think we were there the year you moved, figures, huh?
Still can't seem to post directly onto your blog, but I'll never stop reading! I just have to remember to pop here now and then to say hello!
Happy November!!
Ginnie Hart: I DO thank you for stopping here to let me know you're still reading In Soul, Mad. I have no clue why you aren't able to comment there. It doesn't make sense at all! But popping in here does let me know you're alive. Thanks again.
