Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Peach and Apricot

Cee’s topic for us this week is to use the colors of “…Peach or Apricot [or] any color that combines with a soft orange or reddish orange.”

This sculpture towers above the main lobby of the Hyatt Regency hotel in Atlanta from its starting point, two floors below. When the hotel first opened there was a 100 foot tall water fountain here. I have a feeling that this stainless steel homage is much easier to maintain.

    Stunning picture… At the top of the Regency Hyatt is the Polaris Room, a rotating restaurant shielded in blue glass. In the ’70’s the view from there was a beautiful panorama of the Atlanta skyline and beyond. The lighted blue globe of the Polaris Room was a landmark visible in many parts of the city. Today the Regency Hyatt has been dwarfed by surrounding buildings and the view from the Polaris is surrounding buildings… Thanks for sharing the pic of a peachy part of Georgia’s architecture.

      Hi Al,
      Thanks for your comments. I didn’t get up to the Polaris Room while I was there and I wish that I had. Somebody told me that they have bee hives on the roof and use the honey in the restaurant. Does that sound right, or were they pulling my leg? Ω

        Bees news to me, but yeah is true. Here’s a link to more info http://atlantaregency.hyatt.com/en/hotel/news-and-events/news-listing/polarisbeegardenwallmuralunveiled.html

        It’s a cool city even for old fart suburbanites who rarely get downtown. I do remember attending an inaugural ball at the Hyatt when Jimmy Carter became governor in 1971. After celebrating with champagne, I had to change and report to my midnight shift on a truck dock where I worked for a year after college. That night the remains of champagne made it seem like light work until the fork lift I was driving damaged some carpet. Stayed off the lift until after 4 AM chow break at a Waffle House near the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary…

        We’ll have to check out the Bee Garden Mural at the revitalized Polaris Room and try some honey. I appreciate you reminding me with this picture to take a look around Atlanta.
