great photography.

This is the what I took last week in a car. The cladding of the right building is amazing, melting into the sky!

Dallas's buildings are about the same size as philly's, maybe a few more skyscrapers, It's Houston that has taller ones/more.

Thank you, DesertPunk

for posting my SEPTA image. Interesting story: the guy who physically created those signs for the city saw the image online, contacted me and in exchange for a copy for him, he made me a 20x30 vinyl on PVC print for me.

To my mind Philadelphia's skyline is, together with Chicago and NYC, one of America's three perfect skylines. Someone mentioned it earlier, but there is just a wonderful symmetry to it and it from many angles it just seems to gradually grow up to a tall, spired central core.
