Travel Photo Thursday | Coca Cola Building

Travel Photo Thursday | Coca Cola Building

Today’s photo is a little different.  It started as a mystery.  A couple of months ago, I was at work and I happened to look across the street and saw the weirdest thing ever!  It seemed as if one of the buildings was wrapped in a sock!

 

 

After ascertaining that it was the Coca-Cola Building (it’s headquartered here in Atlanta), I had to do a little digging.   I discovered that they were actually huge projection screens that had been installed to celebrate a milestone anniversary….their 125th!!  Wow, had it been that long since Dr. John Pemberton created that wondrously frothy beverage laced with 9 mg of cocaine?  My…..how time flies!!  Anyways….they were planning something big.  And it looked like this:

    That is SO COOL! Is it up still or was it just for a day? (I’m going to Atlanta for a weekend in August to visit my best friend who moved there so want to see it.) Very cool shot and video.

    This is really great! It’s absolutely a best way for them to celebrate their anniversary. I can’t imagine how long the preparation of this fantastic huge projection screen. The video of it is pretty amazing!
