I love elevators, there are such fun quirky ones out there. It is also fun or extremely awkward to spend time with people on elevators or when the day so demands take photos of yourself in an elevator mirror. Fancy elevators have suede and velvet and chairs and all. And some elevators are too scary. Some elevators smell, some people in the elevators smell. Some elevators "talk". So, yes, I do like elevators.
I used an elevator four times this week. Two times to get down to the pharmacy and the other two times to go to the supermarket. I did not encounter any interesting elevators and I tried not to breathe my flu bacteria (virus? whatever, am not a doctor) on my neighbor. To be fair, the elevator at my building is fascinating, but no photo can do it justice. It's one of a kind. It offers you the ultimate too-close-for-comfort experience. Even when riding alone.
This is how my elevator looks outside. Yes, part of the mechanism just runs on the courtyard wall. Yes, I can hear it all the time, but I hardly take notice. I find it bizarre though. I would imagine all elevator-things should be inside, hidden. The soul of the elevator.
However, while I was not able to ride elevators and be out in the real world I did organize and edit my Istanbul photos from year 2011. Istanbul is one of the coolest cities I have ever visited. Mixture of different worlds and it has an elevating effect, literally.
Awesome, right!? See all of my Istanbul photos here!
Enjoy the last hours of this Sunday and have an elevating Easter week! Let's hope it will be filled with tons of inspiring real life activity.
