Fear of Heights and Shadow Shot Sunday
I like architecture. I often stop to admire a building both for its design and its materials. The other day I was watching a construction worker on a high rise near our apartment. He was about nine floors high walking quickly but carefully along a steel I-Beam. He kept his safety lead hooked to the base wire. As he moved along the beam, he'd unhook and rehook his lead. I just thought how amazing it is for somebody to work that high up. I could never do that job. I get nervous just standing close to the balcony ledge.
I have never been in a building higher than 30 floors. And I could never have an apartment higher than the 10th floor. Although, I am sure the view from a high- rise apartment would be beautiful.
I took the above shot on a sunny day. This view is from the inside of a building on the second floor. For more shadow shots and information on how to join this fun group, visit Hey Harriet's blog.
