I grew up in the countryside. That’s probably why I fled to big cities when I was younger. I talked in an earlier post (on Scottish Islands) about the feelings involved in travel photography in rural wild environments. I’m equally fascinated by landscapes created almost entirely by man.
Skyscrapers are the mountains…the trees…the rock formations of the city. They provide the vertigo in an horizontal world. They draw a line from your eye to the sky. They represent a challenge to nature and the elements. Nothing should stand so high. Above their peaks soar the skies and cloud formations blinded and obscured by light from the city.
Skyscrapers are amazing.
