Then, I was given the Florida forum, later became one of the North American moderators, and fairly recently was asked by Yellow Fever if I would be interested in helping out in here.

In all honesty though, I have been spending most of my time on the Best North American Skylines thread and the Best World Skylines thread because I thought Yellow Fever was pretty much covering this one, but then somebody here reported a post, and I looked into it and then discovered how much of a problem this thread had become. That's why I'm committed to keeping a close eye on it because it certainly needs that.

Ohhh it was not just one reported post, some of the users over here are more concerned about who drinks red wine and eats cheese and who doesn't. Instead of discussion about skyscrapers, they enjoy silly talks.

Well, as I've said, I haven't been a moderator in this particular forum for very long and thought Yellow Fever had this base covered. Would you all please give me a chance to get a handle on this thread? Going over some of these posts regarding the moderation, I have to say "Guys, I wasn't here two years ago!" And I've been slapped on the wrist before for encroaching on another mods territory. Now this one is mine! Bear in mind I also have a real job and do have to sleep sometimes.

For me: Cabernet Sauvignon, red or sauvignon blanc, white.

Anyway, getting back on topic, is this photo taken from the Shard?

Yes sir, and considering the tilt of its conic shadow, the photo must've been taken in the afternoon.

Sorry, but I didn't copy them the right way. I'm used to copying Flickr pics that automatically link back to the source if you embed them the right way. I'll see if I can find where I got them.
