A city in the sky, a great achievement and years of dedication in being built. Hard work and risk, there are no safety harnesses for the working men. Yet despite it’s new construction the city looks rusted from the long time it has taken to build such a thing. Right now it looks messy, almost unidentifiable. The structure has no direction. Just as in the picture there is no positive horizon to be identified.

Where as below the old city, the place we work, live and die over and over again. Looking out through rain and exhaust dusted windows at the passing clouds. Except for the few who dare to take the risk, dare to reach for the blue sky.

I don’t think the picture is about building a city in the sky at all. Its a metaphor for the few who have ambition and dedication to work hard and take the risks to make their dreams. I love the image with a passion.
