Wow - great view. There is gonna be alot of pics taken from those obs decks.

Shots of the Jin Mao from above always amaze me - such intricate cladding.

I am in awe. These shots are just amazing and the whole tower just looks stunning! It must have been one hell of a trip for the visitors and the Jin Mao looks so unbelievably close and extremely beautiful from up top. Absolutely stunning. Pudong and Shanghai are turning into an amazing metropolis.

Although, I'm wondering what this piece of equipment is on the Jin Mao's roof. Is it a small fixed crane for maintenance work on any of the cladding in case it gets damaged or is it a fixture for window washers? I've marked the said piece in a red circle.

Whaaaa?!?!!?! Only the greatest most epic cinematic game series in history! It stands for Metal Gear Solid, and the guy in my avatar is one of the characters.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal_Gear_(series)

Dont bother even trying to comprehend the whole story, your brain WILL explode! Its more complicated than anything else ever made, and I can say that with confidence lol. Even I havent figured everything out and Ive been playing them since the first came out in 1998

It actually has some really good music, like big budget movie quality. It was from the second part of the video btw.
