In the Heat of the Night

This was taken in the heat of night one balmy, humid, night in Philly. I often admire the city skyline at night when driving on the Schuylkill Xpressway. For those of you not from Philly or the region , it's pronounced School Kill. Anyways I set up on the bridge in this particular area and snapped away........until vertigo started kinking in. It's something about the pitch black water that "did it". I had an almost death grip on the railing as I was moving and walking across the bridge. I don't even know if you would call it vertigo, because it wasn't so much the height that "did it". In reality, I more so get vertigo looking UP at buildings. Yes, UP not down. I know you're scratching your head, because it's supposed to be the other way around. But nothing is "ordinary" in my world LOL. I can be at street level and TRY looking up at a skyscaper and CAN'T do it. I get that nauseous, dizzy, near syncope feeling. I think looking up smohow throws off my equlibrium or something. It's something about the perception that messes with my head. Now the other way around..... looking down from the same skyscraper...wouldn't bother me. I know I know...... scratchin your head again :)
You can check out the larger size of this one if you click on it. Had to watermark this one, albeit it's discreet, and you won't notice it on the smaller size.... and you might not notice it in the larger size ....but trust me, it's there.
