Building and Bird

This is Worldwide Plaza, a 49 story building on 8th Avenue in Manhattan.  I was trying to take a picture of just the tip of the building with a lot of negative "sky" space and this bird just flew in as I pressed the shutter button on my iPhone.  Thank you bird, I like it even better with you flying through my frame.

I am wrapping up 9 days of posts about mobile photography over at Mortal Muses today.  I hope you will join me over there!

I am also linking up with the phonography post at Pasando again this week.

Great photo! I don't know why I like that building so much. Architecturally it isn't all that... something. But it has a really nice feel to it. (It's right around the corner from where Georgia's pediatrician used to be)

Fantastic photo and I love the editing. It almost looks like there's a heart in the sky over the building too.

My favorite and most beautiful moments in life are when the unexpected create something extraordinary. The bird in this photo reminds me of those moments. xoxo
