    Something scared the living daylights out of me. Something that had a license to kill.

    I need to find my quantum of solace, something that hits like a thunderball.

    I keep telling myself, "You only live twice, right? Or, is it 'once'?"

    Very Dutch. :) I haven't been back to the Netherlands in over ten years, and I must rectify that. My Dutch is pants and I'm barely literate in the language, but I have a deep love for my parents' home country.

    Happy Birthday, tsq! Nice view Rincewiend! Joel Kirk, you might only live twice, but that just means you'll die another day. You can enjoy this one at the Casino Royale.

    I've spent a few days this past week in Manhattan and I made sure to bring my camera. The full (88 photo) set is HERE, but I wanted to share some samples. TheSeeker (well, Savage Dragon, now ;)), your Bryant Park photo inspired me, so I set out to get some shots of trees in the city - with buildings in the background. They're in the set above, toward the bottom.

    Here's a building pic that turned out really moody, from a year ago or so. Philly city hall.

    Thanks Tora Ziyal & teacake! And teacake, that is New York City. The building you see in all three photos in the second row is the newly built One World Trade Center. The very top right is the Empire State Building.

    1WTC isn't officially open yet. They're still finishing off the interior, but the exterior, including reaching its full height, is complete. So the building has been ... built, but the finishing remains to be ... well, finished. :lol:

    Completely finished or not, it's pretty gorgeous. At least they made sure the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere is an eye-catching piece of architecture.
