I was trying to find something special to do for the 9/11 anniversary, but came up dry, so here's a shot from my first downtown trip with Abe. This was actually shot from atop the 9 story parking structure (which we now know belongs to the Arizona Center). Why a big deal? See this post.

Lots of neat, solid lines in this. But the surfaces and saturation really make it visually appealing.

Shots of roof-top parking lots are not my favorite :-). But I definitely agree with Dennis about the saturation; it's really nice, especially for somebody close to a dull, gray London. I feel warmer already.

Thinking just about 9/11 is enough I think

You pulled this one off very well. I have a similar shot but haven't posted it. The tonality of this shot and the corrected distortion at the wide angle are both very impressive. Nice job!
