Actually i wonder how those double decker elevators work?

So if you are on the ground flloor and it gets filled up by people. Then the one on the lst floor will be practically empty. Whats the point?

Or it doesnt work that way?

At 2 IFC, elevators to a certain range of floors depart from either the ground floor or the 1st floor. Double-deck elevators pick up passengers for both floor ranges and transfer them to the appropriate skylobbies.

Example :
- elevators to floors 31-40 depart from ground floor
- elevators to floors 41-50 depart from first floor
- bottom deck stops at skylobby for 31-40
- top deck stops at skylobby for 41-50

some shots taken yesterday...









the area between the core and the edge is really big...






very good weather..








the lamp pole is taller than the sorrento !!






it reached the second "air-hole"~
it seems that the core becomes thinner... part of it doesn't grow upward...




entrance of US6~




















can anyone teach me how to take a good picture when facing the sun?




the harbourside is very huge...

WOW! AMAZING PICTURES!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing!

About your question related about how to take good picture when it toward to the sun... I had similar problem with my old digital camera... I got a new digital camera around last month ago and I don't have any problem with that. I think Having 8.1 mega pixel and up digital cameras are better and able to handle the situation as you mentioned.

Ahh, thanks for asking and answering this question.

So basically they're actually two elevators in the same tube?

At first I thought they either had stairs, or was double decked, which would make things SLOW...
