wondering if a kind local LFF soul would "show me the sights" - landscape and/or architecture prospects.

will buy lunch, gas, etc...

Sorry I missed this, I was out of town. If you are in ATL again, I assume at the airport, I suggest hopping on the MARTA up to Peachtree Center, which is just blocks away from the GA Aquarium, Olympic Park, World of Coca-Cola, Center for Civil and Human Rights, Philips Arena, CNN Center, etc. No need for a car. All great for architecture and general tourism. Landscapes in Atlanta proper are something I haven't explored much but a bit east is Freedom Park, and there's also the Atlanta Botanical Garden which is nice, especially the Canopy Walk. I suggest an Uber to get there. Better landscapes would be outside of the city, but Stone Mountain is nearby too, and just an hour or two north where I live is the Appalachians, which is ripe for landscapes but is definitely more of a commitment, both time and exertion!
