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!

Paul,

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.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
