Things Are Looking Up

in the big city of Bloggingham

Beautiful day.
Clouds in the buildings -







or are those buildings
in the clouds?

despite the finite interruptions of
concrete and steel
the world is a glorious place to be
I get to choose, everyday, which song to sing in my cloud
or what I want to build
inside
How far I decide to reach
is totally

up
to
me

That's so beautiful. Buildings in the clouds, in my head, anyway. Love at you, lady.
xoxo

Autumn said...

Beautiful! What an optimistic & visually breathtaking post. :)

Kitten said...

Glad to hear you're feeling a little more upbeat. :)

Mimi Lenox said...

Tilli - I suppose you could look at it both ways. Love to you across the pond as well.

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - You should have seen the stares as I drove slowly through lunchtime traffic hanging out the window with my camera pointing upward. People were giving me evil looks thinking I was a NARC or something.

I can amuse myself so easily.

Mimi Lenox said...

Kitten - I was down?

Julie said...

Very good Mimi...thanks.

Starrlight said...

Those building make me feel like I have stepped into a Pink Floyd album cover!

Some see steel and glass ... others see panoramic grace.
I guess it depends on which eye you have open.

(( wink ))

Charles Gramlich said...

A lovely reflection. In more ways than one.

Thom said...

Those are beautiful shots. Love it. Sounds like you are feeling better. Must have been the TLC I gave ya after fainting at my place LOL

Svem said...

YAY!!!!!!!!

Carver said...

Beautiful shots Mimi. I think I shot some of the same buildings recently. My daughter and I were killing time in Greensboro where we were picking up my sister on the way to a family reunion in the mountains. Naturally my daughter's flight into RDU was ontime so we arrived at Greensboro to discover my sister was having a 4 hour delay in Laguardia. We went into Greensboro to hang out and I had my eyes peeled for a lady wearing a crown and a pencil skirt. No luck. But I did get some good downtown Greensboro shots.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie Girl - You could use a little looking up today, if you catch my drift...

Mimi Lenox said...

Starrlight - It was the nitrous gas. I just thought they were buildings. I just thought I saw clouds...

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - "Panoramic grace"..a lovely phrase. I'm wide open with both eyes, however.
At the moment.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Thank you. It was hard not to use the word reflection in the post. Too obvious.

(We all know how subtle I am. lol lol..that just cracked me up)

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom - I missed the TLC. I was out like a light.

You didn't set my hair on fire or something, did ya?

Mimi Lenox said...

Svem - I see ya.
Smile.

Mimi Lenox said...

Carver - If you've seen one building, you've seen 'em all....and clouds pretty much the same.

I will check out your shots! (hoping you didn't take one of me falling out the window somewhere.)
It's a hazard.
I really should buy more insurance.

Bond said...

When did you redecorate the palace? It did not look like that when I was there....

Ricardo said...

You know, II like the concrete and steel for some reason. Freakish right? I'm glad it's looking up for you. May you soar.

Akelamalu said...

Wonderful shots Mimi! :)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

No, the people who saw you with your camera probably just thought "Oh, it's Mimi Pencilskirt."

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - There were more trees then....

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo - Soaring!! Thank you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - The sky was awesome that day.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - Will you bring bail money?

Svem said...

Feeling cool, smiling :)

The Gal Herself said...

Love the photos! Really, they are gorgeous. But then, I'm a City Mouse. I appreciate the way architecture reaches into the sky. So in my world, it's not "despite" the interruptions, it's cuz of them.

But then, as a City Mouse, I don't have deer in my backyard. Hell, I don't even have a yard.

Thank you for the beautiful shots.

Mimi Lenox said...

Svem - I see ya there....

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I can appreciate both really. But I couldn't tolerate the smog in a big city...UNLESS....I could escape everyday to a little piece of land with trees at night.
That would work.

Travis said...

Great angles on the photos.

And let me tell you...the Santa hat really doesn't take that much of the skeery out of the orangy photo.

Misty Dawn said...

I can't begin to tell you how awesome these photos are Mimi!

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - I'll try bunny ears...

Mimi Lenox said...

Misty Dawn - Coming from you that is quite a compliment. Thank you!
