    So, I went into downtown Dallas today and took a few pictures. I took a lot more than this but am being a bit lazy so I only felt like processing these four. :lol:

    This is the famous JP Morgan Building down town with the big whole in the middle of it.

    Well, I made buddies with one of the people that work inside and he took me up to the lounge directly at the bottom of the "hole" and let me snap off a few from the top... er, I was just using my zoom lens to "see" some of the sights from up there. :D

    Then I walked around town and came to the Grassy Knoll and couldn't pass up that opportunity.

    Then I had to get out to the Dealey plaza and shoot from a familiar angle. The leftward building is the School Book Depository and the window he supposedly shot from is the furthest right, second from the top floor window where earthcam.com has a web camera situated and streaming live feeds, towards where I'm standing to shoot the image.

    Thanks for looking :D

    Thanks ya'll. It was hard for me to not see the town in black and white since it has such an older feel to it. Some of the architecture down here is just stunning. I feel there will be many more trips downtown to take more. :D
