"Views Across the Rooftops"

The theme this week by Lew is "Views Across the Rooftops". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. You can see what others show on my side bar.

Well what an unusual theme. Lew wanted us to do some climbing to get a rooftop photo. Since I don't like to climb I decided to go into the new PARTA parking garage. I drove to the top floor and got some photos of the new construction in Kent. I choose this photo of the converted Kent Hotel ( which is now a BW3 and shops) with the theater across the street. Acorn Alley phase one rooftops are behind the hotel on the left.

This is a view across the roofs of several buildings. The KSU Conference Center, new apartments and restaurant in construction, and new business building as part of the expansion of the Acorn Alley area. Kent is an active place.
This is a close-up of a future rooftop.
The KSU Towers and one of the campus buildings.

Neat work Tom, like the line of lamps from the car-park.

That's my style too, Fishing Guy! About 10 years ago, I took a log exposure of a downtown Chicago nightscape... from atop a parking garage. It was neat to be up there. Unfortunately, I don't have free access to that building any more. I enjoyed these pics.

You can't beat going to the top of a car park to get a good view of the cityscape. I often do it, as Nottingham has several tall ones, that give a different perspective on city living, although I don't like heights

Tom....I love to go to the top deck of a parking garage and just look. There is so much to see. I especially like it when almost all the cars have left except mine. The photo of the construction fascinates me. I enjoy watching floors and levels being built. Fascinating....and how quickly the workers accomplish this!
Love your photos. Thank you for sharing them with me.
