awesome, I thought this is some big ad or something, and not a building!

DNA test... HAhaha. I never thought of that and Iím a scientist who does those routinely! Great angle and frame

Jesus! I am definitely getting a 12mm lens lol. This shot is seriously amazing. I miss wide-angle photography. I guess I'll have plenty of opportunities this summer when I go to Cali and Utah.

This building is pretty spectacular as well. I like the way it's seemingly one inch thick... when you look at it from the top.

instead of a DNA test, it actually reminds me of two things.. one is a old style punch card (dangling chads anyone?) and the other is the music sheets that go into a player piano... i actually started to look at it and try to figure out if there was a method to the number of windows on each floor and gave up ;)

nice 3D graph arch. you did it without the program too...

i like the photo better than actually the real thing. i always get creeped out walking by that place. like the prisoners are watching me or something. there's a fenced in court for the "good prisoners" at the top of the building too.
