From on top of the world.

The skyline of a city, any city, is a fast disappearing thing. With the onset of skyscrapers, the sky is something that cannot be seen. But what is exhilarating about these skyscrapers is the view that they present from the top most floor. Unless you suffer from vertigo. Then it’s just a scary thing, not so much exhilarating.

A lot of people would argue that the advent of skyscrapers has made urban life into a concrete jungle. And I have no argument to contradict that. My love for skyscrapers is only about the terrace, nothing else. Imagine standing on the last floor of such a tall structure.

The wind is stronger up there than it is anywhere else in the city. The view is spectacular, the city seems never-ending. Breathtaking doesn’t even begin to describe what you see, and invincible doesn’t even begin to describe how you feel. After all, in a way, it’s almost like you’re on the top of the world, looking down on creation.
