See this one? Go exactly halfway up the left margin of the photo. Look just in to the right till you see a building the looks like two vertical thick white stripes. No look at the next building over, a little shorter. Look halfway up that building on the left side. See? That's me! I'm waving! Hi!

Why isn't anybody waving back? I'm going to get tired of this pretty soon.

I'm too busy sunbathing nude on the deck of the boat in the lower right, sorry.

There's even one that captures the Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City before the 04-19-95 bombing.

Above the center line near the left margin is a tallish white bldg set off by itself. From the bottom half, a straight line to the right points to the tan, rectangular Murrah bldg.

And, once again, these so-called "skyscraper sites" somehow overlook the tallest freaking building in the world, Taipei 101.

Amazing.

World's largest skyscraper, no.

World's largest potato chip, yeah.

It's all about priorities, see.

Why are they all so low quality? How odd.

I have an almost bizarre attraction to cityscapes, especially at night. Am I one of the only people who can wander around downtown in any large city and just be amazed at how beautiful the neon lights look?

I'd rather stare at a city at night, than a span of wilderness, I think. Oh God, I'm like a soulless machine, aren't I.
