Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

I love pictures of buildings.  Here are some I took in New York City while I was looking up.

This makes me dizzy. How about you? I would have gotten a better picture, but I wasn't allowed to stand.

I like the reflection of one in the other.

More reflections

Like a bird on a wire...

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

  1. Now this is an exotic environment to me!

  2. Robin says:

    Really nice photos! The first and last make me a little dizzy. Nicely done. 🙂

  3. I love the second reflections photo so much! Nice photos!

  4. Amy says:

    These photos deserve awards! Great observations! Some two years ago, I was in NYC was for my niece wedding. I was overwhelmed by crowds, traffic, and buildings. I think you just taught me to see NYC from a different perspective. Thank you, Susan!

      NYC can be overwhelming if you aren’t used to it. I grew up 50 miles from it, my Dad grew up there, and my grandparents still lived there when I was young. My grandfather had a men’s store on Madison Avenue and lived a block away from the store. I have always loved the city. I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures, Amy.

    Your first picture hurts my neck a little! 🙂 The second and third are nicely done with the reflections, the birds together on the wire is neat, too.

    Great photos! I love how the use of “up” with these photos. I wouldn’t have thought like that.

  7. Margie says:

    Fun pictures – New York is a good place for Up views!

  8. The first picture is way cool! I love the reflection pictures too. Nice!

  9. Great pictures! I had to really look at #1 to get it all. What they did with the cars was clever and especially you for the effect it makes. MC Escher-ish?

      Thanks, Georgette. NYC is the best when it comes to taking pictures. I love to play around with angles.

    • I went over to read “MyPajamaDays”. It’s a great post she has up today. I remember that episode and I remember the comment. How very matter of factly your daughter handled that. Not tmi, just let her own daughter comment. She is very wise that daughter of yours. And I can perfectly understand if you got something in your eye at that moment. It had to have been a very proud moment.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
