Graceful

…Whether it’s a person, a building, or an abstract shape, show us something that exists harmoniously with its surroundings. —WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

The capsule-shaped elevator cars in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency hotel in Atlanta, GA glide silently from floor to floor, adding a graceful science-fictionlike vibe to the futuristic elements of John Portman’s 1967 design.

    Looks like something out of a beautiful steam-punk inspired dream. Great shot 🙂

    Could be a chart from an ancient sailing ship too gliding the high seas.

      Good point, Carol. I was going to school in Atalanta when the hotel opened in 1967 and it was mind-blowing at the time. The entire hotel got remodeled about 10 years ago and it is still an amazing place.
