Above the Lights

The urban jungle that never sleeps. Bright city lights masquerade as the stars above. A reflection of humanity. A testament to our hubris.

There's a comforting warmth to know that in the ruthless growth of society, you are nothing and yet the sky is within your reach.

This makes my heart beat really fast. Just imagining if I'm in place of your character or just watching them from afar among this cityscape. Makes me want to cry for some reason. 

I love it! Your ability to create such great emotions in me.

I adore the colours used in this, and it seems to have taken a while to get the beautiful light reflection on the roof. This is beautiful!

Sometimes I wonder how much i'd be willing to give just to have the ability to see a sky full of stars in the middle of a city.
