More views of the Emory University Hospital – Tower building

In a prior post the subject was the main building of Emory University Hospital in Atlanta (More views of EUH – 1). This post concentrates on the very new and modern Tower building.

Here the building is seen from the pedestrian bridge connecting the buildings across Clifton Road.

Each building has a café with surprisingly tasty and modestly priced food.

More views of the Emory University Hospital – main building

Parking is available in a multi-story structure across the street from the main building of Emory University Hospital. There are elevated pedestrian connectors to get to the various building. Here is a view out the huge glass sidewall of the bridge walking from parking to the main building.

This building dates from 1945 as can be seen in the lintel of the entrance.

The building is set back from the street and there is a parklike area in front.

Here is a pano-stitch made from a group of photos taken closer to the building.

Inside, as you would expect, besides the state-of-the-art medical facilities, there are some nods to the early days.

Here is the stained glass window of the chapel room

There a couple more photos that were included to an earlier post, New and Old.

New and Old

Some views from around Emory University Hospital

As is typical of many hospitals, Emory University Hospital, has grown from an initial building to a large campus with structures of many eras.

The main building is interconnected with newer buildings and facilities with overhead enclosed walkways. This includes a pedestrian bridge across Clifton Road.

The bridge is thoroughly modern looking, outside and in.

You can see the walkway structure leading right to the side of the older, stately main building.

And there is a visual surprise. One walks from the 21st century right into the 1920s. Complete with stuffed furniture and chandeliers.

There is also a display of an Olympic torch from the Olympics held in Atlanta in 1996.

Here is a closeup of that display case.

Now we need to pay homage to our slogan here. This blog is about “chats and tips about photography”, so it behooves me to tell a little about these photos. All of them were taken with an iPhone 7. All underwent post-processing. In part due to the format that the iPhone uses for storing photos, “HEIC”. I usually use ON1 Photo RAW to do the conversion and some other post-processing tasks. That also included some perspective corrections.

Just to show how much detail an iPhone photo contains here are a couple of crops from the image above, with some additional processing.

Yes, indeed, these “text” images are crops from the above photo with the white and black sliders in the Photo Gallery histogram in the Adjust exposure panel brought next to each other. There was also use made of other tools.

Georgia Winter

Winter in Georgia

Yes, we do get winter down here in Georgia. Sometimes we even get snow. Here is my story of “winter” in Georgia in 2020.

On February 3rd our first daffodil greeted the new year.

The next day three more blossoms joined the chorus singing to the coming of spring.

Alas, it wasn’t spring that came. It was a cold rain “event” that beat down the flowers two days later and reminded us all of the official season.

The daffodils are a hardy bunch and determined to do their job. By evening they stated to lift their blossoms back up. But then, surprise, on the following morning, February 8, at around 9:30 snow started falling. It had been 750 days, according to one of the Atlanta meteorologists, since the last snow fall in our area. And it wasn’t just a light dusting. We got the full deal! By eleven o’clock that morning about an inch of the white stuff covered the ground and our spring messengers.

Winter snow had come! Of course, hereabouts that’s to be enjoyed quickly. It doesn’t last very long. By five in the afternoon the melting was on its way.

By nine-thirty the next morning it was back to work for our persistent friends.

Our trumpeter of spring proudly stands tall and bright.

… And so do its friends.

Our daffodils, my iPhone (which captured all but one of these images), my shadow and I wish you a happy Valentine’s Day and a glorious spring time!
