Lovely photos. You need to watermark them before putting them on the web, because you'll be doing commercial work soon if you keep it up.

Good pictures, again.

I work in the downtown area, and I enjoy seeing the tall cranes rising, especially for the Central Park East, and City Scape projects. I just wish they stayed with the original plans for City Scape, in which the tallest tower would have exceeded 500 feet and would have made it the tallest building in Arizona.

Oh well, I guess it'll take over the title of "Second Tallest" from the US Bank Tower (Originally The Arizona Bank Tower)

I watched the movie the Gauntlet this past weekend, and I like the beginning of it, where it shows downtown Phoenix in the foreground, as it was in 1977, and a sunrise with Camelback mountain, The McDowell Mountains, and Four Peaks in the distance.

Back then there were only 4 tall buildings in downtown Phoenix, the 40-story Chase Tower (formerly the Valley Bank, then Bank One Tower) which is also still the tallest building in Arizona, the 30-story US Bank Tower (formerly the Arizona Bank, then The Bank of America Tower), which was newly built and opened back then, the 27-story Wells Fargo Tower (formerly First National, then First Interstate Bank Tower) and the Hyatt Regency Hotel, which was also newly completed over 31 years ago.

I also like the way the music blended in with the sunrise and downtown Phoenix, I forgot who the music was composed by, but it sounded pretty good in that scene.

Dang! I love those pictures of downtown Phoenix. Those out-of-staters who deride this city have nothing to say when they look at those pictures.

Mini L.A., that's a good analogy of the Phoenix metro area. I think there are about 10 to 11 million people that live in the entire southern California region, and that includes the "Inland Empire", wihch are San Bernardino, Ontario, Riverside, and all of the communities around them, extending west 50 miles to the Pacific coast, and from Oxnard, to 50 miles south to all the communities in Orange County.

If you take the area from Casa Grande, all the way north to Anthem, and from Apache Junction, all the way west to Tonopah, then you'd have an area that's equal to the one I mentioned in Southern California, the only difference is only 3.5 million people live here, and we have a lot more open space, and I hope it stays that way.
