Photo Friday: Heights

Category: Memes | 10 Comments | Posted 18:45

Again, 2 photomemes in a row. Yep, that time of the week again. I do apologise. Photo Friday this time, Theme: Heights.

This is, um, as you'll probably recognise, lower Manhattan (from Empire State Building). Taken in 1996. The WTC towers really were a lot higher than the rest, uh?
I'm a sucker for heights, and panoramic views, so I have lots more of these... like Barcelona: here or here, or Warwick, or Edinburgh.. and of course Paris, Paris, Paris, Paris, Paris, Paris and Paris. :))

God it brings back memories. I think everyone who's been to NYV has their various shots of the skyline. NY has been robbed!

Yep. And in 50yrs' time (or so) we can tell our grand children (or other people's in my case) "I remember when NYC still had the WTC" and they'll be like "Nooo, really??"

That's an amazing shot of the twin towers... I mean, it's a perspective that you don't see often and it's true that it shows their exceeding height very well. I was on the WTC a couple of years before the attack. The towers are so huge, one tower's like a city on its own... I mean WERE and WAS... still can't believe they're gone!

Helicopter = satellite Mir

@ Suha Too many crÍpes?

LOL @ Val. I wish I'd been on the towers too
But I bet every tourist who's been on Empire State has a shot like this

Oooh - that's an interesting pic, cos of the angle that it's taken, it looks like all the buildings are climbing up! Like one big hill! And the two towers are the big peak of it. Great pic.

I love heights too. And LOL @ your last Paris pic - that's not taken from a height - I think you just stuck that one in there cos of your obsession!

Um: "we can tell our grand children (or other people's in my case)" is what I said.
