'Atlanta In Context,' a New Photo Series, Begins Right Now

New, 5 comments

Reader photos welcome as part of ATL photo potpourri

Photos: Curbed Atlanta

Today marks the launch of a photo-driven series called "Atlanta In Context," which will be occasional snapshot compilations of points of interest around the Big Peach as seen through our lenses — and those of readers. Think of it as a potpourri of unrelated (but interesting) perspectives on the ATL.

This inaugural installment takes us to Emory University ruins, a Reynoldstown canyon, and a venerable strip club. And the floor is hereby open to readers who'd like to email a pro shot or decent camera phone pic for a future "Atlanta In Context" post. We'll be sure to include full credit, so you'll see your name (and spellbinding Atlanta imagery) in lights.

Just make sure you provide relevant context as to where the photo was taken and why it's cool. (All photos must be at least 1,000 pixels wide, please). Email applicable photos to the tipline

Newcomers to Atlanta might not know the Tattletale Lounge on Piedmont Road was name-dropped in Mötley Crüe's smut-rock classic "Girls Girls Girls," and thus this sign. At first blush, the ad appears to boast "Since 1916," which would really be impressive.
