up on the roof








Some of Justin's coworkers had a party last weekend on a rooftop with Manhattan as the backdrop.
I'd always wanted to go to a party on a roof and I loved it.
There was an older lady in attendance, probably somebody's sweet grandmother, I thought.
Not so much sweet, and more like drunk off her tail with the mouth of a sailor.
We watched as the city surrendered from day to night. It was absolutely beautiful.

Our only picture together courtesy of drunk grandma.

  1. I'd hope that Homey G-ma and her inebriated photography only enhanced your enjoyment of the evening... And if not, I'm digging all of your crystal clear images :)

  4. And now I'm going to have James Taylor's "Up on the Roof" in my head all day. Which is a good thing!

    These pictures are so pretty. Absolutely dreamy. Even the grandma one.

  5. Rooftops are my favorite. My first apartment in Boston had a roof deck and it was amazing. It looked right over the Charles river and I even got to watch the 4th of July fireworks from up there one year. It was perfectly wonderful.

    I love the view you had and your pictures are lovely (as always)!

  12. It sure is nice and entertaining to be throwing a party on the roof. It’s going to be exclusive, and yes, the sight is amazing! The city under the night sky truly makes a marvelous background for a party. :)

good communication is as stimulating as black coffee,

and just as hard to sleep after.
