Another Day at the Office

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 27 August 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Okay so my job doesn't totally suck.
We are installing a rooftop garden on a penthouse in DT Vancouver.
I'm not supposed to take pictures but.... the light, the view... how could I not? Don't tell my boss!

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

What a fantastic sneaky shot! But, I've now got severe vertig.........................

@CElliottUK: Ha thanks! It was an amazing view and in the morning light.... but at this point I was hanging on with one hand to a ladder that seemed to have an awful lot of give.

Nigel from Avening, United Kingdom

Could be an orange runway - your escape route........

@Nigel: Haha... I guess if I had wings!

Excellent and very clever POV !

@Basile Pesso: Thanks! I was mostly just scared I would drop the phone :-)

Rafael from Talavera de la reina, Spain

It´s interesting. The way to your job so nude, without beauty, and, in the end, the monster city...I like this interpretation...Hmm..could you give me the boss phone? Ha ha!! Good image, Mooie, cheers!

27 Aug 2012 8:49am

@Rafael: :-) It was a place to put the phone while I held on to a ladder and took the photo... but it worked out ok! Thanks for the comment, Rafael!

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

We are lucky that you made it !! It is a magnificent photo. It gives me the dizziness also!!

@Mhelene: There is a balcony below, so not too far to fall from here... thanks for the comment!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Big kudos to you for this wicked compo. I love the skyline view, of course, but this long expanse of roof edge jutting into the shot is just great.

27 Aug 2012 11:08am

@Rick: Thanks! I couldn't really see what the shot looked like until later, but it worked out alright eh?

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

I wish my office had this view, hell.. I wish my office had a window!!
