The Morning City From Above....... Did you Ever care to Look Down?

Well, I know this may sound like a foolish question to people who live in apartments which are beyond 7 or 8 storeys high. But I'm not talking about aerial views here. Perhaps, you've heard of overbridges (I don't know what they are called in other countries or whether they even exist in other places ). They are these pedestrian bridges spanning the width of the roads which people use to cross the roads, much like subways, only overhead. I sometimes had to go for work early in the mornings and I used to stand on an overbridge on my way for a while, taking in the fresh air of the morning, the golden rays of sunlight striking on the buildings but not yet so far down as to illuminate the road, the cars plying on the roads with their windscreens suddenly dazzling me by the reflection of the sun,... it all seems so good. So tell me, friends, how does the morning city appeal to you? Looking down from above, what things attract your attention? Do share your thoughts and feelings. Cheers.
