Tall Buildings, Big Eyes

I love architecture. Whether it's a crappy little shack in a town of 200, or huge, tall buildings in a huge, big city. I've seen a lot of tall building in my life, but, I must say, NYC takes the cake. I felt like a complete tourist (which, I guess, I was) looking up at these ginormous buildings. I don't feel I was as awe-struck as the 40 year old Midwest moms surrounding me, but, it was pretty darn cool to see the Empire State Building.

I have a lot of pictures from my recent trip to NYC, so, I'm trying to separate them in to a few sections. First up, my favorite pictures of architecture.

Architecture and photography... I love it when my favorite things combine! I love the picture of the Empire State Building.

You might as well put together a bunch of pictures and sell them as postcards out there. Those pics are amazing!
