This photograph captures one of the things I love most about Atlanta -- its up-ness. I have yet to experience another city so jostling, so elbow-to-elbow with its own image, with its head tilted to look into the high blue. I don't know the name of this building. It's right beside the Fox Theatre, just off of Peachtree. But on this spring day, with this limitless sky, it seemed as if it thought it just might make it to the top if it could just s-t-r-e-t-c-h another inch. That's Atlanta to me. Always after that extra inch.
