Probably the coolest feature of the building I live in is that you can access the roof, two floors above my apartment on the 24th. It is connected to the tops of the other two buildings in the complex, so you can wander around all three to get 360-degree views of the city.
While taking these long-exposure pictures I noticed there was lightning off to the north. I tried to get some pictures of it, but it was just too far away. I also noticed that I was standing about 8 feet away from the lightning rod for the entire complex, so I decided it would probably be a good idea to head back inside.
|I should point out that it is not a 25-floor drop off that ledge. There is a section of roof below it, so it would've been about a 10 foot fall.|
