ATL Terminal Spotting

Tue Jul 17, 2007 4:55 pm

I am flying through ATL soon and wanted to know if there are any places to spot from inside the terminals. Any help or comments welcome.

Thanks

I was in Atlanta last May and was able to do some photography. My luggage arrived an hour later than I did so I passed the time on the parking garage photographing the arrivals on the north parallel. I had an afternoon off later in the week so I went back to the south parking garage for an hour. The taxi route was much closer to the garage and the afternoon sun was good. I was one level down from the top to be in the shade.

My most enjoyable photography was at PDK. They have a nice area to photograph near the runway intersection and are spectator friendly.

Unfortunately I'm just making a connection, I probably won't be able to leave the secure zone to go to the parking garages, are there any spots inside one of the terminals?

Thanks

I have spotted from the E-concourse. On the north side of the terminal there is some windows were you can catch rotations if they are taking off in a west direction. The windows have some tint but I have been able to remove it with photoshop.
