Gerald.

The BD opus to be done by Kracken would be nice to get ahold of. Their other opus's are supposed to be have fantastic pics. They say this will have many construction pics not seen before (to the general public ... ) Besides the giant book they will be auctioning off some editions to the public - way out of my price range I'm sure - hundreds or even thousands I'm guessing. That is one I hope someone scans and puts on Emule ...

I have seen the future, and it is a stereotypical city of the future, and it is in Dubai. (No hover-cars, though.)

Pollution, naaahh. The city is right at the sea. What you see is the dust. We had very clear skies over the last couple of days , but yesterday afternoon the weather changed a bit.

Also, keep in mind that this pic was taken from a distance of 16-18km...

I would want to be chained up on the 160th floor. A gust of wind, and you are a goner. Best video I've seen of the Burj (not the fountains gerald) in a long time.
