I know it seems like this blog is just becoming a record of big apartment building windows. But think about it for a moment, this is horror too. It’s beautiful and attractive, and it’s also terrifying. There is a human for every one of these windows, and for every building like this, covered in windows, there are hundreds of thousands more all over the world. Every person living out their life, living the tiniest detail. For most, 60 or 70 years of living every day. 7 billion people living every day, living every movement. The scale is terrifying and wonderful.
