Song~ography ~ Up On The Roof

                                   When this old world starts a getting me down 
                                   And people are just too much for me to face 
                                   I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs 
                                  And all my cares just drift right into space 

                                                                                              James Taylor

 
                    Linking up with Kathy over at You'll Shoot Your Eye Out.

Love that song! and a perfect shot to go with it!

Ida said...

Great shot. I'm not sure I'd be climbing those stairs though. Fear of Heights.

I love this old building and I love the way you shot it too. So interesting with all that pattern and color

I love the notion that the song is talking about escaping by climbing up - and this fire 'escape' is meant to provide that escape by climbing down. Yet, I can only imagine {because of movie scenes and photos} that many city dwellers use those stairs much more the way the song might indicate ... and much more rarely for the purpose they were made. Love the shot!

This scene is a perfect fit for the song. I love this old building - especially the windows.

Diane said...

Maybe I should start listening to lyrics...love your rendition of this!

Cool. I love buildings like this. Love the fire escape.

Sharon said...

What a cool fire escape! I love finding these. Downtown San Francisco has some wonderful old buildings and I've gone out the window onto the fire escape there :)

Gorgeous textures and colors in this building. And I am always drawn to fire escapes. A friend once told me I should do a coffee table book of fire escape shots because I have so many. STILL contemplated that. It's the perfect way to get up to a roof in my opinion :). Thanks for linking up to Song-ography!

What a lovely old building and such beautiful windows. I could climb that fire escape right up to the roof (if I wasn't afraid of open stairs like that) and sing along.
