Nice shots, jelpee. Funny comment about the worm. I was going to say he's one strong worm to have climbed that building!

Very cool shots! I especially like the skating rink - an interesting viewpoint.

Thanks Patty, Harriet and Gumnut!

The skating rink is one that the city installs in the center of town during the Christmas season...I imagine to imitate NYC's Rockfeller Plaza! It attracts quite the crowd I must admit.

I took several images from atop the observation deck of a skyscraper and thought it was an interesting perspective. I also took this one with a slower shutter speed in order to show some motion...but once I looked at the image again, unless I announced that it was a slow shutter speed, it could well be mistaken for camera shake! I think the reason is there is no reference to a static object such as the walls or other definable characteristic that is static.



And let me addwishes from myfamily and I for Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Peaceful 2009.
