The beautiful Salt Lake Valley as seen from the foothills to the North. This is a view looking south, on the left is the State Capital Building, to the right is the Mormon Temple, the street running on the far left is the bustling State Street. My home is about 15 miles just to the left (east) side of the frame.
Zzzz... man, am I sleepy, but maybe I do so in the subway car... nah, just kidding. Here's the late night version of Revision 19 of the NYC Subway fantasy map, where the night riders ride along the subway, while the rest of us sleeps in our beds, probably dreaming of that (or maybe something else )
Changes in service: * (D) trains run at "Co-op City" station at all times, replacing the (B) at this time * Shuttle trains that replace the (3) in Brooklyn also terminate at Howard Beach (same fashion as the (A): one to Cross Bay, another to Howard Beach, and so on and so on) * Once again, no (7) express service in Queens and Manhattan
Just another little something I scribbled up whilst on holiday.
What this scene depicts is Lower Manhattan during a stage of high development during the mid-1980's. Rubble and excavated dirt from the construction of the Twin Towers and surrounding World Trade Center complex was used to create reclaimed land onto which the World Financial Center was built, a complex of smaller office towers across the West Side Highway on some of the former dockyards of the Hudson shore.
The WFC, now known as Brookfield Place, was built between 1985 and 1997, with the tallest structure 200 Vesey Street (formerly known as 3 WFC) being completed first. The design of the structures was carried out by Olympia & York, the same folks who designed One Canada Square in Canary Wharf, London, formerly Britain's tallest skyscraper. Separating the two halves of the WFC is the Winter Garden indoor greenhouse and auditorium, which was opened in 1988 and features a beautifully ornate botanical garden. Formerly, the Winter Garden provided access to the adjacent World Trade Center by way of a pedestrian footbridge across the West Side Highway.
Behind the Twin Towers, the final structure of the World Trade Center to be built is seen under construction, this being 7 World Trade Center, also known as the Salomon Brother's Building, which opened in 1987. 7 WTC was a 47 storey structure, and 3rd highest in the World Trade Center complex behind the Twin Towers. The structure acted as an emergency bunker for the Mayor of New York during the event of a crisis, being fitted with water tanks and power generators independent of the conventional city infrastructure.
To Clarify; NO photoshop manipulation! Just upped the contrast and saturation just a little bit!
The idea was to capture 2 separate worlds in 2 dimensions, showing that there is no limitation to where we go in the life we find ourselves in. Hopefully this will explain the title and the importance of the character in the centre.

23-11-2013 - I updated it with a cleaner version. There were some dust spots and (hardly) visible stitches which I had missed before. Thanks you all for your comments, I appreciate it but not always have time to reply
Greece - Hydra Island. There is one main town, known simply as "Hydra port" (pop. about 2,500). It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. Most of the local residences, as well as the hostelries on the island are located on these streets. (Info from Wiki)

Daily Deviation: You made my day today .... my very first DD .... Great ... Thanks everyone for this ... I will reply to all comments, however, too many favorites for me to handle. To all the ones that fave this photo, please, consider yourself thanked.
Took this on my last day in Tokyo. I went all the way from Nippori to the Roppongi Hills tower, because I heard they have a so called Sky Deck on the roof top. When I arrived, the young lady selling the tickets told me, that unfortunately the Sky Deck was closed, but that I could go the the observation deck instead. So I paid the 1.500 „ and took some photos from behind a rather dirty, double-glazed window front.
PS: In regards of the camera date below - Time Taken: 10:50 a.m. +7 h of course

San Francisco, Golden Gate 75th Anniversary celebration...After the fireworks, the remaining cloud of the smoke shined in the sky with the light beams...This reminded me the awesome aurora photos, which in this case more like red and purple instead of green
With the long exposure, I could also catch some star trails and the reflection on the Bay...
thank you very much all, for your comments and faves...
Another oldie from Utrecht, taken the same day as the previous one
------------- Location: Utrecht, the Netherlands.
My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…
Another panorama taken with the fujifilm X-E1. This was not shot with the inbuilt panorama function but more rather the good old stitch by software method. I did try to take the scene with the inbuilt app on my panorama head but it read, "sweep straighter" I assure you I was as level as I could be.
It seems the app was design for handheld sweeps as I did it handheld and got a panorama. but it was not how I wanted it due to the large dynamic range of this backlit scene which require HDR to be done.
I hope you like the image and favourite it too! Thank you and have a great week!
