Great shots Mark! Here's a shot of the wind tunnel that has developed between Sky and FB on the Strip when you walk between the buildings on the sidewalk. Fascinating.

Ooh, I like that view of the corridor down the boulevard. Like a canyon.

Yeah, it's topped out, except for the final crown, which they are working on.
