30 Days of Photos IV: Rising

Today is Day 26 of MikeWJ and Ziva‘s 30 day photo challenge and the prompt is Rising.

Yesterday I was getting all sentimental about the earth becoming forever “poisoned” by the roads that we lay upon it. Well I have another angle since I’ve always been fascinated by infrastructure and the buildings that rise up around us. Nope. Things are not always black and white. Sure, nature = good and pollution = bad, but also, balanced and liveable cites = good. If you live in a city, the hope is that it is actually is liveable which is especially true now that the majority of the world’s population do live in cities as it was estimated in 2010.

This office tower was built in 1992 at the end of one of our largest building booms since the 1960’s.  There’s another building boom underway right now but this time they’re building high-rise residential towers in the downtown core, which is something that we don’t have a ton of. The idea is to bring more people to the city and to stem suburban sprawl over the next few decades. Will it work? Time will tell.

Well that was dry. Now head on over to Ziva‘s, link up, and see how everyone else interpreted today’s theme.
