One thing I've always enjoyed looking at are skyline shots of cities worldwide. Some are more prominent than others, but all are unique in their own way. Feel free to post a picture of the skyline of the city you live in...or a place that's near and dear to you. I'll kick it off with a couple from New Orleans...both from slightly different angles and both featuring cruise ships.

The new Downtown OKC with the completed Devon Tower (850 ft). Plans in the works now for at least one additional new tower, plus a few more 10-20 story high rises.

I thought I recognized that BestBuy on Hawthorne & PCH there, well also the edge of Zamparini Airfield too. I actually happen to live about six driving minutes up the hill behind the shot's point of view over in RPV.


It honestly never occurred to me what awesome views there all over this corner of town. Wish I knew about this place the last time I lived in LA...

Oh cool! I love driving through PV. I'm actually in the process of moving to San Pedro right now. Wish I could live in PV.

I found that cliff when I took my girlfriend on a horse ride up there. It started in Ernie Howlett Park, and we went up and over that cliff.
