Yes, I think this was taken from my apartment around January this year. It even made a number of newspapers and magazines.

It will be interesting to see the lightning effects this year with the spire completed as opposed to the steel structure.

Correct not from 2009, but from around the early 80's.

Maybe I took this photo also from Trade Centre where my office was in 1981.
