Here is a shot I was working on for Dec competion at our photo club. Assinged category was city skyline. I took this shot from the roof of a 19 story building this summer while putting in a satellite dish on the roof. Thought I would post it since I have been a little dry lately. A big time computer crash doesn't help things any. still trying to get everyting back in order. mad

Anyway Handheld, Canon xti, 17-85 IS USM, from 200+ feet up in the air.

Paul,

Your photo makes me think back to when me and my family lived in the F-M area back in the mid 90s,I have been up to visit many times since, but not in the last few years.I can remember some really fun times there,like when in Jan of 96 we had a blizzard that put down 18"-20" of snow with night time temps dipping down to near 40 below a few days later,need to get back up that way.

Nice job Paul. I believe that is the old Ford building centered in the photo. The windows that were installed during the restoration are from the window company I work for. It was a huge project for us. I always wanted to see a photo of that building after the restoration. A lot of our employees put a lot of time and effort into building those windows to the rather unusual specs that this project called for. This is the first I have seen the finished project. Thanks for sharing. If you have any closer photos of that building, I'd love to see them.

WCS, you are correct, That is the old Ford Building redone a few years back by Sterling Development and MBA architects. know the building well. There are 10 upper end condos on the top 2 floors in which I have clients in. I have a few photos from the inside, but since it is only a mile away from me, I will gladly sneak over and get some more photos for you.

And Frank Boling in Oklahoma, I used to live in Oklahoma and now I am in Fargo/Moorhead. You used to live in Fargo and now are in Oklahoma. that is funny. I was born in Tulsa and raised in Broken Arrow and Spavinaw on the NE side of the state near Eucha, Jay, Grove etc.

Iteresting! Even a Canuck like me can recognise a landmark or two in this scene. About a year ago I visited F/M as I was scheduled to conduct an ice fishing seminar at the Gander Mtn. over there in West Fargo. I had some spare time on my hands so I decided to simply take a self-guided tour up and down the very streets that are depicted in this piece. The one building that I can instantly relate to is that clock tower, the old water tower also jogs my memory too.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow that is funny,and just goes to show it is a small world after all,in-fact I was born in Tulsa also and was raised in Tulsa and Broken Arrow,right now I'M living between Broken Arrow and Catoosa.The two years or so we lived in Fargo really did some wild things to my daughter's accent, she had and still does to an extent an Okie mix with ND and MN,really sounds kinda funny at times when she talks,LOL.

    • Great pictures and even better memories.
    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
