Hi OTR.

I thought you were doing a 'shop - but I see on a vid there actually is a pyramid set up. Can't tell on the vid its location.
1 - Is it set up in the same place the tent structure was ?
The purpose of the tent was for what again ?
2 - What is the purpose of the pyramid ?

Thanks.


Ray.

Being a pap, is a full time job... for me just a hobby

Geralds just shot him on top of the spire,, Image will be sold Today and out on the internet friday, papers on Saturday,, probably and exclusive on one UK and US paper..

Video sells to CNN and Sky,, you think it quickly mounts up on the global persepective...

If Tom was to fall,, that 4 figures could go as high as 6 quite quickly..

New 2.8 gigapixel shot of the Burj Khalifa.

For the first time, perfectly stitched.

I think.

Cheers, and it's a pleasure.

Here's another one of SZR taken yesterday.

It's been a busy week.

No, that's actually Tom Cruise filming M-I:4 Ghost Protocol, they were getting some helicopter shots of him atop the Burj Khalifa, which features prominently in the film:

Why Is Tom Cruise Sitting On Top of the World's Tallest Building?
http://gizmodo.com/5693238/tom-cruis...-world-tonight

Quite a view.

More from the film:

Hi Gerald.

To quote South Park ...
Those Bastards !!

On another note ...
Awesome pano's. The BK one is excellent. You should let me have a 20 megapixel copy of that. I'd like to make a poster to hang on my wall.

On yet another note ...
Great coverage of the top platform recently.


Ray.
