This weeks corner view is :: cityscapes. The challenge was to go to the highest place in your town and take a picture.
While my city is pretty small (200,000), it is very spread out. The downtown is on a very narrow isthmus flanked by student rental housing on one end, and the university campus on the other. The Capitol building is right in the center of that, and all buildings downtown must be shorter than the Capitol, so that it is always prominent. That makes for a pretty small downtown skyline! My husband and I moved here from urban Chicago and I have lived in a few big cities, so this downtown doesn't really seem urban to us. My neighborhood actually does have one of the highest points in my city, I believe, and so the view above is from our hill.
I thought about going downtown to get a photo from a high point there, but we like going downtown about as much as we like cleaning the garage, so my photos are from afar! The bottom image is the city skyline from a small boat launch/fishing spot just across the lake. Ahhhh.
