city daily photo theme day - heights

this theme 
heights
is 
one
 that 
i thought a lot about

 did they mean
 looking up at something high up
 looking down from somewhere high up
 out from somewhere up high

 i guess
 you and i 
will have to go
 to see
 how
 other people
 interpreted
 this theme

 personally
 i chose
 looking out from a great height

 i am using a photo
 i took last december 
from
 top of the rock 
which is 64 stories high

 you can look out 
over new york city 
across to new jersey
see way back there 
that bridge
its the 
verrazano bridge
to 
staten island

 its pretty impressive

 scared
 the bejesus
 out of my friend janice

 this shot
 looks downtown
 past the empire state building
 look
 way down there
 you can see
 one world trade aka the freedom tower
 last year 
 it was still uncompleted

today
 its nearly done

 sometime 
next year 
my office is moving there
 then
 i can take photos
 from my office window
 looking 
uptown
 i promise to share

 meanwhile 
here

  1. Last year's view of where you'll be next year.
    Of course. I understand perfectly.
    Beautiful view, and lovely in a photo. Might scare the bejeepers out of me, too, if I were standing there.

  3. I see a few water towers also. Are they going to put one on top of the new building? Exciting that you are going to move into it. I'd get the water thing straighened out first though.

  10. I would think in NYC, the best views of the tall buildings would be looking out from the top of one.
