Umm, what does "McDonald's yuck" mean? Lol, McDonald's is delicious. No matter what places we eat at now as adults, you have to admit that McDonald's was your favorite as a kid.

Anyway, here are mine of Houston. I know it's only supposed to be one, but I couldn't resist. Taken by RGV, by the way.

This does not represent the city, but it's probably what most people think of when you say "HOUSTON".


These are the city at a very "alive" moment, representing the culture.

That looks like the whole skyline, to me. Atleast, the great deal of it. Both the Sears Tower and the John Hancock are visible.

Ooh, and I just found this one. So pretty. I believe this is a nearby suburb. Either that, or out somewhere on the island.

Viewed looking NW, yes. You cant see 1/2 the buildings in that shot. What youd need are a direct west or east view, but I dont find many shots like that, because theyre hard to achieve, especially night shots.

Oh, I see. Not all that familiar with the Chicago skyline, except for "The Tower" which I love. The only skylines that I know practically every angle of are Houston and New York.

Yeah, its hard to explain. The Sears Tower (is that the "tower" youre referring to?) is on the SW corner of downtown. The Hancock is on the NE corner, with the AON center in the central eastern part. When people shoot it from a corner, naturally alot of buildings are "hidden" in a sense, making the skyline appear rather sparse. But if you look at it from directly east or west, you get the full scale shot.

Yes, I meant the Sears Tower.
