Hey yall, I need your help.

I am doing a project for atlanta, re-doing our way finding system. I've broken the city up into four different sections each with a unique color relating to its history and vibe. It is all encircled by the beltline.

I am shooting today and I am trying to find great locations to get foot traffic, especially from a higher vantage point. The above vantage point is important because I am going to color the crosswalks and bike lanes in photoshop.

Where would be best for this? Thanks!

I have always felt that the best skyline view came from from Westbound Freedom Parkway (or maybe from one of the bridges over it) You can see the distinction between the downtown and midtown skylines and even further uptown to Buckhead. I always make this a part of my "grand Atlanta tour" when I have out of town company. Spectacular, urban glamour at its best. It is more distant, but the top of Rich's, well Macy's, parking deck at Lenox Square gives you a more distant view.
