    It is my lovely wife, but she was wearing much more practical shoes than the ones shown in the window bolts shot!

    No wonder he said; "Easy, tiger."!

    I've moved the posts relating to the tragic death of Zen Steel Dude to a new thread. Please leave your thoughts there.

    I don't get the pattern. Oh well.

    Yeah, that's always bothered me too. Seems they could have figured something better out. Maybe from far away you will not notice.

    Thin slivers of glass would be more easily noticed. And how would a fully framed tiny window look from the inside?

    They do the same thing with floor tiles.

    While I thoroughly enjoy seeing different milestones reached on this amazing project, I don't really look forward to its ultimate completion because I'm so enjoy witnessing the process and I particularly enjoy/appreciate the way everyone here shares information and their passions/interests (photography, engineering, architecture, etc.).

    However, I am looking forward to the opportunity to meet many of you in person once the project is complete. I hope we'll do that. Definitely something to look forward to.

    With that said/typed, I have to admit that I was looking forward to meeting Zen the most and being able to shake his hand. He and his family and especially the beautiful wife he was so very proud of are very much in my thoughts.

    Peace

    This one is for Zen. Rest in peace.

    We're about to get sky, sky and more sky reflected as this one rises.

    I can now see the top of the crane cabs from my window!

    What's the tallest building downtown now. Is it Chase?
