The Portal

Vertigo Warning - this is another post where people who suffer from vertigo may want to skip as it is looking up shots

For this post I will share some shots of a building that I call the portal, it is at 135 East 57th NYC

Now from this first shot you may wonder why I call it the portal, it is an interesting building with the curved street-front shape, but when I step back from this view and lookup again you can perhaps see why to me it looks like a sort of portal from a SciFi movie.

Now you are either agreeing me thinking especially in Mono it does kind of look like a portal, or you have just confirmed that I am nuts LOL

Its been a little while since I did a post for the looking up challenge that has been started by @melinda010100 and @pixelfan, so this will be an entry for that challenge as well

And finishing off with a similar point of view but a different shot this time in color

Wow straight up to the stars! It does look like a portal, we've been shown them
so many times in different sci fi movies, star trek, stargate, etc. All the windows
like doors to other worlds. Fantastic photos @tattoodjay! How is your neck? :-)

I think the concept of this view being a portal came from watching the Stargate show now that I think about it

and my Neck is fine I cheated and used the tilting screen on my camera for these shots

That’s definitely a portal.

Few good to know I am not losing my marbles lOL

Another interesting photo, and yes I see the portal.

Thanks Kindly, someone reminded me with a comment calling it stargate like I think its that show that makes me think this

Great perspective! And yes, that portal reminds me of Stargate.

Stargate thats what I should have said it is probably what I was thinking of ;)

No not weird at all! It does look like a portal! Love all the curves and angles!

Well I am weird but maybe not in this case LOL

Of course that could make me weird too, but I know that I am! LOL!

Normal is so well Normal and boring lOL

Yep! You hardly get me doing "normal" things for a 71 year old! LOL! I'm just me!

and just me is all you need to be :)

Yep. That's what I say!

Love the idea, I would bump into other people photographing though, I am trying to do a building structure blog, but this is inspiring as always !

Thanks for your visit and kind words :)

Looks like a portal alright! Good luck in the contest. I do have to add that maybe you are just a tad nuts too! 😂 don't you have to be to get on in this world?

Thanks and a saying I often use is Sanity is over rated LOL

Seriously. I am still coming to terms with surviving a collision with a younger bull moose last Saturday. Like wow. Life.

That would sure put a dent in any aims of staying sane take care my friend

It is Stargate! It looks like a portal.

Yes thats probably what I was thinking of Stargate

so many are so busy heading to and from wherever they feel they need to be they never look up and miss cool sights like this

I have a friend who lives literally across the street from this building and he actually asked me where it was LOL

Great photos Jay and especially for #lookingup! Amazing how a different angle gives it a different perspective and definitely has a portal look to it! The first photo sure had that vertigo feel to it..for me anyway!😉

Sorry about the vertigo feel, I am lucky I dont suffer from it but that also means I dont know which one is worse, I thought the first shot would be the less vertigo-inducing

That's perfectly I think it got me cause I wasn't expecting it even though you gave fair warning. 🙂

OK, I do worry that they may really upset some people, normally I do a non looking up photo for the first one but forgot this time

Cool shots....

Thanks Mate I hope your day is going well :)

A great post. I enjoyed the lookup challenge.

Thanks Kindly and have a great day
