They do that from enthusiasm and euphoria withing the discussion frame of this forum (tall buildings and urban development) and no matter how annoying they can be, it's no compare to any hateful, jealous, ignorant, pretty much moronic comments by people who are in this forum by accident.

You couldn't have been here in a better time. The weather is amazing, the week long rain cleaned the dust/sand/pollution from the air making everything looks as it should, the traffic is almost non-existent due to the long holiday, however tomorrow is back to work and traffic chaos.

You have to resize and host them online first, like for example in www.************ and then post here the link/tag generated there after the upload is complete.

You can't upload pictures here directly from your PC.
