A little bit of Paris...in Atlanta...

My first overnight business trip in quite a while...this time to Atlanta. So yes, a hotel window pic is definitely in order...this time, the comfy Four Seasons...my very first Four Seasons, I believe.

One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the nearby High Museum with my colleagues. Coincidentally, the museum is hosting a series in conjunction with the Louvre. The current exhibit is about 130 objects from the Louvre's "ancient world" collection. My favorite piece was a simple, painted cup/vase from a city in modern-day Iran. The piece dated from 6000BC...which just blows my mind. An 8000-year-old object!!

After touring the museum, we had drinks and dinner at the hip restaurant at the museum...Table 1280. This high-design space served up some fantastic dishes. I had a veal tagliatelle that was amazing and reminded me of Siena.






We finished the night with a grand discovery...a new drink. One of my colleagues introduced us to a simple 50-50 Baileys and whiskey. Wow. Fantastic. We have dubbed it "The Ed".

I like the mirror shot, although there seems to be a fair amount of noise in the photo when I look at the enlarged picture. Is that you holding the camera against the wall in the reflection?

bobgirrl...nope, this was truly my first Four Seasons. Perhaps the next time I'm at IKEA down there!

james...yes, the ISO was really high in that mirror shot, becaues there was almost no light. And yes, that's me using the wall as a tripod :)
