I really like skyline photos.  Here’s one I took in Hong Kong a few years ago - I imagine it’s already changed.

Just a question: were these mountainous pictures taken from Dry Creek?

I took this photo from our table at the Windows on the World restaurant, on top of the World Trade Center, almost exactly one year before 9-11.  Not the best quality, hand-held long-exposure on film, but one of my most treasured.

Love that pic! I wish I would have had some filters when I took this from the Peak. Plus, it was a small pocket camera.

I had to go back and look at the pic of the outside of the building to read the sign. It's an Episcopal church.

Mr @JL Sargent I know your not in Georgia but right next door.  I seen this in the news and it was quite a surprise, I did not think they could make it through the winter.

 

https://www.yahoo.com/news/georgia-officials-trying-stop-large-184645807.html

 

Georgia officials trying to stop large, invasive lizard that eats 'anything they want'

An invasive lizard that grows up to four-and-a-half feet long is causing concern for Georgia wildlife officials who are attempting to eradicate it from the state after years of sightings.

"They eat just about anything they want," said Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife biologist John Jensen in a May 8 video about the Argentine black and white tegu.

While the lizards have not been a threat to humans and common household pets, Georgia officials say people should avoid leaving pet foods outside, as it can attract the lizard. They are not known for being aggressive towards humans, although sometimes they may chase people.

The reptiles grow large, reproduce fast and eat a wide variety of things, from fruit to eggs, birds and small mammals. Tegus pose a threat to native wildlife, including gopher tortoises, a candidate for Endangered Species Act listing. They have been documented using gopher tortoise burrows and eating tortoise eggs and the young.

Jensen said the DNR is setting traps for the reptiles and asking for sightings to be reported. But "if you're able to safely and humanely dispatch of the animal, we encourage that," Jensen said.

 

This marks the third year the lizards have been trapped in southern Georgia, the Orianne Society said in a Monday Facebook post. Tegus have been causing problems in Florida for years.

They are popular in the pet trade but trouble when released in the wild. In Georgia's Toombs and western Tattnall counties, the lizards have been spotted crossing dirt roads, have turned up on game cams and even gotten trapped in a farmer’s shop.

If tegus are reproducing in the wild, catching them early is crucial. Once established, as with Florida’s two known populations, the only effective response is trying to stem their numbers and spread.
