Perspectives from the Other Side ~ NY from across the East River

My little sister is fascinated with the 1 World Trade Center and its anticipated building height of 1,776 feet. I decided to take a few perspectives of it, and other landmarks, from across the East River, in Williamsburg.

  1. What a beautiful day you’ve captured, Marina! I love the vibrant flowers, the shadows, the perspective of the skyline from afar. I wish we had time to road trip to the Big Apple during this North American trip. Your pictures have transported me there for the morning, though. πŸ™‚

    • Tricia! thank you for traveling through these images. It always feels like a challenge to photograph a similar scene in a different way, but I found this pretty fun to do. New York will be here when you have time to return! πŸ™‚

  2. I really enjoyed this different perspective Marina, beautiful! London’s tallest building, and the tallest in the EU, has just been completed at a mere 1012ft. It still dominates the skyline of London as you can imagine. I’m not sure what the fascination is with building yet taller and taller but when the Shard opens in July, I’ll certainly be planning a trip to the observation deck on the 72nd floor. The views from the London Eye were impressive. Can’t imagine what it’s going to be like from this new elevation. πŸ™‚

    • Imagine then going to Dubai and standing atop their tallest building! Have you seen the latest Mission Impossible? Tom Cruise was hanging by a thread! I’d love to see your London Eye photos – are you able to share them? I always look forward to your picture so cannot wait to see what you’ll photograph from the 72nd floor. Glad you liked these – I need to get to the top of the Wythe Hotel and take pics from above! Next mission πŸ™‚ Thank you Adrian!

    • The curved framework framing the WTC you mean? The Williamsburg Bridge is in the image under it – I was experimenting with some skewed angles to include the foreground πŸ™‚ thanks!

  3. That seventh shot is very striking. It reminds me of your architectural images the way it is framed. Beautiful. I love the combination of structures and organic images in this post.

    • Hi Karen! I do need to take some more architectural shots – I’m glad I captured a bit in this post. That’s what I love so much about Williamsburg – it shows NYC from another POV that puts the city into a little more perspective. Thank you!

  4. Skylines and clouds, trees and shadows, flowers and grass, all my favourite things. A wonderful post! πŸ™‚
