Great architectural photos, buddy. That first one reminds me of Darth Vader.

Some great architecture shots. Is that first one a Gehry design? Those seem to be popping up all over the place. We have one in LA too.

Looks kind of like downtown Whitney... ok, so we don't really have a downtown in Whitney, we don't even have a town, we have a village... I quite like the McLeod Building, if they ever turn it into condos let me know. It's got the perfect combo of lot's of wall space and big windows.

So is #6 where Joni Mitchell's "I stayed last night in the Fairmont Hotel" comes from? I mean she was from Saskatchewan, could have been eh?.

Thanks Jerry well based on my vast architectural knowledge HA (google) architect Randall Stout was the designer (from LA) , very similar style to Gehry.
