40 Wall Street

This was the tallest building in the world for the brief period from April 1930 to May 1930 after which it was beaten in the race by the Chrysler Building.
To take this photo, I had to lean back and almost make myself horizontal in order to capture the whole building in the frame. I felt this kind of architecture would look better in black & white.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
