For the time being, we have chosen to live in a highrise apartment. We sometimes find ourselves complaining about having to wait for the elevator, or the fact that we don’t have the luxury of a backyard for our dog. And I just can’t appreciate the glaring neon streetlights or the birds’ eye view of a parking lot.
But I have to remind myself that that’s exactly what we have: a birds’ eye view.
From up here we can see the Ottawa River, the Gatineau Hills, and some very lovely sunsets. I just have to ignore the cars and the street noise, and use my camera to frame a little piece of it.
