I have always loved the grand old marquee of the Fox Theatre in Atlanta's Midtown. I first laid eyes on it on a high school field trip to see Cats. Although that's the only time I saw a production there (despite my best intentions in the decade I lived relatively nearby), I took photos of the beautiful facade on several occasions including my final week in the city.
This particular photo, however, was taken early on in my love affair with photography and has remained a crowd-pleaser. Normally, I'm not much for stark blue skies, but I think in this instance it works well, that bright blue is a great backdrop for the beautiful vintage Fox sign, isn't it?
I'm sure the popularity behind this image is that it does speak to all of us who love Atlanta's historic landmark, both those who live there and those of us who have moved away from the ATL.
