From Above

The kids are having a wonderful party in a room from which the roof has been removed. 

There seems to be a preponderance of girls....... and how quiet the level below is in contrast.

Then night fell and the almost full moon rose over the Chelsea Hotel.


  1. Your last sentence reminds me of a Leonard Cohen song! Marvelous city photographs, as always!

  2. Oh to have a deck with the view of a church spire right next to you.
    quite lovely

    cheers, parsnip

  3. I took a moment to view "From Above" through Google Earth, your part of the world. I was taken in the click of a mouse to view the Chelsea Hotel. Then I took a virtual flight around Manhattan West. Maybe someday a visit to The Big Apple will be possible for me.

  4. Oh- thank you for these wonderful photos! I think to live above the city is a great feeling. I always dream of a big, big penthouse with a terrace and a great view...
    The photo with the full moon- fantastic!
    Enjoy it- you are lucky to have it!
    Hugs, Ines

  5. At first glance I thought this was a dolls house!

    There are so many songs connected with NY, like Pamela I thought of Leonard Cohen.

    Re your last comment on my blog, I do think that screen printing is coming into it's own. Digital can be so perfect, each print identical to the last whereas a screen print has subtle variations and has the hand made touch which is so prized now.

  6. Someone had a great idea about the room without roof, if only our climate would allow for that...:)

  7. The moon picture is great, such lovely hues.

  8. What wonderful photos! I love how people in the cities make rooftop gardens...I notice a couple of them beyond the focus of your photo. And now I am wondering what church is that too! These views from above are so full of interest.

  9. Amazing photos!
    Yes, sounds it was a great party.
    Love the church with the green tower!

  10. Wow what a picture, the room with the roof removed. I guess nobody would ever know from the ground.

  11. What a gorgeous shot. And the second one, like a painting.
