Thank you so much. 🙂
This iconic bronze and black beauty, the tallest residential building in NYC, soars 863 feet into Manhattan’s skyline. It was built in 2001 at a cost of between $3-400 million. Wouldn’t you just love to have a peek inside one of those super luxury apartments, or even Donald Trumps penthouse way up on the 68th floor with its gold and diamond covered door?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

I don’t have too many photos with interesting reflections, and I had used most of them for Jake’s Sunday Post  ‘Reflections’ challenge, but here are just a few more that I found lurking in my photo file.

No prizes for guessing where this one was taken. Of course it’s owned by the guy with the most famous comb-over in the world. 🙂 When it was completed in 1983, this 58-storey skyscraper on 5th Avenue Lower Manhattan, was the tallest building in the world. Donald Trump lives in the penthouse of course, and other residential parts of the building are occupied by some of the wealthy elite of New York.

In complete contrast to Mr Trump, here is another duck, although this handsome fellow would rather be called a Great Egret. He is usually the first bird I see every morning, as I look out of my bedroom window.

Here is some of the a lovely countryside, on our journey from Umhlanga to the Drakensberg mountains in South Africa.

This one was also taken in the same area.

This image taken in our Jeep, shows just how hot our South African summers can get. Thanks goodness for air-con.  I can’t make out the weird reflection, but I suppose it must be me taking the photo. I don’t usually look like that. 🙂

Lastly, I was looking through some photos of our son’s wedding at Lake Tahoe, and found this one of me about to make my ‘descent from the clouds’ into the garden where the ceremony was to be held. I had never noticed the sky reflection before. 🙂
