thanks. yeah, kinda of a tribute to downfallen. I always thought that the way he would place himself in his shots was one of the most intriguing elements to his photography. and by the way thats me. first one is a little blurry because it was windy up there and my hoody kept flapping.

I thought the same. I guess Downfallen is already a legend here on this forum.

Very nice pics. I enjoy looking at Houston's skyscrapers. Compared to dt Seattle's hills it sure was nice to walk the flat streets of dt Houston.
