Yep, there's one place you will....9am on I 30 East in Dallas....the UPS trucks do that. Every other place in our area they bunch up like a pack of dogs fighting for lanes.

That is the same truck. The image was shot from left to right and stitched together.

I thought about that, but then looked at the boats and the small green truck in the center, going the opposite direction. There are no duplicates of those.

I think you're right, but I can't keep this off-topic much longer without feeling someones wrath.

ライトアップは、パナソニック(Panasonic)のオールLEDに決定

 パナソニック電工(Panasonic)は、東京都墨田区に2012年春にオープンするタワー「東京スカイツリー」に関して、ライトアップ用の照明メーカーに決定したと発表、タワー専用の照明器具を“オールLED”で開発を進めていく。使用される器具は約2000台。

 東京スカイツリーは、東武鉄道グループの東武タワースカイツリー株式会社が開発する、高さ634mの地上デジタル放送の電波塔。東京都墨田区の押上駅と業平橋駅の間に、2012年春にオープンが予定されている。

 同タワーでは、「永遠に続く江戸の心を光で表現する」ことを目的に、隅田川をモチーフとした水色の「粋」と、気品のある“江戸紫”という色を使用した「雅」という2パターンのライトアップを1日毎に行なうことになっている。また、富士山のような冠雪をイメージし、頂上部を白く光らせる「光の冠雪」や、展望台の周囲を一定の早さで光が回転する「時を刻む光」、タワーの上方と下方から光を重ねることで、“そり”と“むくり”を強調するライトアップも展開される。

 パナソニック電工は、これらタワー外観のライトアップ用の照明に使用するLED照明を開発する。









 東京タワースカイツリーの藤井角也 代表取締役専務は、照明を開発をパナソニック電工に決定した理由について「技術面、金額面を総合的に判断した」と説明。パナソニック電工の長榮周作 代表取締役専務は、「照明事業を始めて58年目。その間に培ってきたハードとソフトの技術を使い、省エネ性、コンパクトさ、耐久性を最大限に考慮したものづくりをしていく。“パナソニック電工にしてよかった”と思われるライトアップにしたい」と意気込みを語った。

「江戸紫」カラーのLEDを新開発。従来の約半分の省エネに

 長榮氏は続けて、パナソニック電工の照明技術の特長を説明。色度座標を用いて望み通りの色を演出する「高精度色再現技術」、最大1万台までの照明器具を制御できる「調光技術」、シミュレーションで器具開発を効率的に行なう「3次元解析技術」などをアピールした。

 「高いところにつけている為、風圧の解析も行なっている。私も昔は照明器具の設計をやっていたが、当時は計算機片手に手書きで解析し、トライアンドエラーしていた。今の時代は解析技術が進歩しており、短時間でご要望のスペックにまとめられるようになっている」(長榮氏)

 また、「雅」の演出時に使用する江戸紫色のLEDには、従来にはなかった専用のLEDを新たに開発。従来までの技術では、400Wのメタルハライドランプにカラーフィルターに通して色を演出することになるが、LEDを採用することで、器具1台当たりの消費電力を約半分にするという。

Fantastic shots of those individual pieces of steel being put in place.

What are the small horizontal bars that are evenly spaced on each leg?
They sort of look like ladders on the exterior.

This question has been asked before but with no response.

Those are temporary bars that the scaffolding is attached to, I guess (and hope) that they will be removed once the lighting is in place.

Really love the lighting scheme for this tower, it will look so "fresh".

05/14 quick update.

Yes, no blog update this time but my own pictures taken from the airport express to the city. Don't mind the quality, it was already becoming a bit dark and the train wasn't going slow.











As you can see they continued with removing the nets in the tower.

Tomorrow a proper update.

I'll be in Japan for 3 weeks, most of the time in Tokyo, just 1 week in Osaka.

Anyway, after a very long yesterday I woke up early again. It gives me the time to sort and edit the Sky Tree pictures I took yesterday morning.

This tower is amazing. I like this one better than the tower in Guangzhou.
Ok, Ok, this tower is more attractive than the CN tower (will they ever paint the bare concrete?).

Thanks loefet for the answer.

MoMo, do you think you'll be there the end of this year? I'm planning a trip then. Would be fun to meet up! After all, we're the two well-known Tokyo-crazy Dutch-forummers! Well the rest of 'em are drooling over New York City, we know where to find the REAL action!
