    Thanks! And yes, they bother me too! Lol.

    Also, I noticed in a few photos that Sandridge and FNC are considerably taller than City Place, even though Sandridge is listed as being shorter by 47', and FNC taller by 6'.
    Are their listed heights correct?

    Having spent my four years of undergrad at OCU, this picture is painfully awkward for me. It looks like The Classen is north of the OCU campus. Where is this taken from?

    It was taken from Integris, looking southeast towards downtown.

    This.
    Flat dry land, cactus, tumble weeds, cowboys, belt buckles, cowboy boots just screams a Southwestern culture and that is exactly what Texas and Oklahoma are. Heck, look at University of Texas's football games. The entire band has southwestern clothes on and wear cowboy hats. They prance around with a long horn steer as a mascot. People walk around saying "Howdy Partner". Pre game festivities have the feel of being at a rodeo.

    That is an absolutely beautiful building and campus! Wow. If OKC can get another large company to make a similar investment DT, watch out! Impressive. Love the narrowed streets with horizontal parking, really gives the DT an urban look.

    Sandridge is on higher ground. Not sure, but City Place used to have a rotating 'time and temp' sign on top of their building, maybe that is the difference.

    That is AMAZING. Love.

    Very excited about Vast. Can't wait to eat there. Hopefully Nebu and the coffee shop can move to a more 7 days a week operation at some point, as downtown grows.

    Thanks. Feel free to use it, I'm not worried about copyrighting. This is all for public enjoyment.

    I got some cool shots on the old I-40 this morning and afternoon. I totally went out in the middle of the highway. Where else can you do that in a major city? Steve told me on Wednesday, they are going to let people go out there and take photos one last time but I haven't seen an article.

    We spent time at Coney Island, then went driving around the blocks south of the old I-40 in the Core to Shore demolition area looking at the completely neglected but interesting buildings around there. Stuff that I've driven past a hundred times but never stopped. Honestly, that's not a great area to be walking around. Last thing I need is someone saying "I want that camera you got there", then end up stabbed and left between one of the abandoned buildings there. Plus you have the eerie forever silent hulking mass of concrete called I-40 that adds to the strangeness.

    I only wish Doug had been in the car with us - he would have loved seeing some of those forgotten old buildings (including one stunning architectural masterpiece I myself had NEVER noticed)
