Hi all.

Yes, the shots are some good stuff. I have some others taken the same day (I assume) by the same photog. These (including the big one) are new to me.

If my assumption is correct these are from 10_11_06 (YY_MM_DD). If it is not correct, I believe they are from very close to that date.


Ray.

I've got an 18" photo of the Burj Kalifa. As to whether anyone would want a taller structure, I have a four page schematic of the mile-high Illinois Building Frank Lloyd Wright proposed back in the 1950's using a concrete core and resembling a sword stuck handle first in the ground, like a taproot foundation. 15,000 big cars would have been stored in the underground parking for an est. 130,000 inhabitants. 528 floors!

Did you just say there are higher buildings in sydney?? The Burj Khalifa is the tallest man made object(not only building) in the world. It is 2717ft, the tallest building in sydney is little over 1000ft.

I noticed in the photo, that some windows (glass panels) are missing; anyone know why? I some kind of interior work?

The pictures were old according to Furi, those missing windows were probably related to the filming of 'MI:IV' that took place around that time.
