The Chrysler Building (Weekend Reflections # 55)

This is one of my favorite buildings. I took this shot from the entrance on Lexington Ave. I think this reflection is on the other side of the Hyatt building that I featured in Weekend Reflections # 53.

Attention an important message from LinkyTools: "I am currently upgrading our entire system to make it faster and even more dependable. I've had VERY LITTLE downtime for over a year, so I trust you'll be patient as we will probably experience some bumps and problems for the next day or two. LinkyTools is FREE, so I have to do all this work myself. I pray you'll bear with me while I get this upgrade done. I'll try to keep the errors and downtime as much as humanly possible. " My fingers are crossed. :)

1)Post a photograph taken by you that contains a visual refection.
2)After I post my Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to MckLinky

4)Link Weekend Reflections to your post so other will know where to go if they want to join

You have such huge and tall buildings over there, and James, you know how to get the most out of them.
Beautiful shot.

We take the LinkyTools for granted but we should be thankful for this cool tool that helps to link us together.

Laura said...

James I love your reflection photo! and the one below of Bucks County...oh how it makes me long for home. I grew up near there and spent a lot of time in those rolling hills.

thanks for this wonderful meme and your generously gorgeous photos!

awarewriter said...

Nice one James. I haven't been to NYC in so long... I don't get into Phila. much these days either.

Your image is almost horizontal. Of course we know that your reflection is one tall building reflecting another. The small triangles in the corners are good clues.

I'm not a big fan of reflecting glass, but I do like your image.

Mama Zen said...

That is really cool!

Dianne said...

it's beautiful James, beautiful!!
I used to work on 33rd and Lexington and this was one of my views
as many times as I may have seen it your photo makes it all brand new

good luck with upgrades, they can be frustrating
I appreciate you hosting WR every week

Marie said...

OMG! I love it!!!

Stickup Artist said...

Reminds me of a scene from The Matrix when Trinity crashes into the glass skyscraper and there are infinite ripples vibrating into space. Great scale.

JunieRose2005 said...

Oh! How I wish I could visit NY again!
(have had only one brief visit there!)

A very thrilling reflection, somehow. The massiveness of the buildings with the delicacy of the reflection is wonderful.

quilly said...

I commented here last week, but I see it didn't go through. I just love Blogger not. At any rate, I said I love the perspective of this. Looking at the photo makes me feel small and I can well imagine what standing between those huge buildings feels like.
