Looking at the Sky on Friday

I am joining this photography meme for the first time. Yesterday was a really warm and sunny day. I got out of the house and took a two hour walk through an old part of the city and alongside Hirose River. I will be posting more shots from this walk throughout the week.

Kawaramachi Towers by Gallery Juana

These two towers stand alone in a neighborhood. They mark the neighborhood of Kawaramachi in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. I am not sure how many floors there are, but my guess is definitely more than 5o floors. For a small town girl, that's a tall building:) Whenever there is an earthquake, the elevators stop working, so to return to your apartment, you have to take the stairs!

Yep, definitely more than 5 floors!

A nice long walk in sunny weather sounds wonderful.

living in a house like that:
you never know when it's gym time!

(you have to walk up to 14th, 32nd etc. floor, oh, that would be good training!)

And my Uncle thought my cousin's 12 floor walk-up in NYC was bad! Gorgeous sky!

Very cool perspective! I just posted as part of this this meme for the first time, too!

the buildings are so dark and the sky so pretty and delicate--love it!

The perspective of the tall buildings being just tiny in comparison with the vast sky! Beautiful sky!

Nice angle to your photograph. I would hate to climb those stairs, but worse yet...to be in the building during the earthquake!

I love the perspective...beautiful sky!

I love the perspective, gives a wonderful sense of height

welcome to looking at the sky :)

Hey Harriet said...

Wow! They're huge! Walking up 50 floors would be quite a workout! If earthquakes were happening regularly over there I'd be locating to a ground floor apartment I think!

Such a powerful photo! I love the bright sky behind this magnificent man made structure. Very nicely captured.

Thanks so much for joining us. :)
