I like this a lot. I really like how the lightning can be seen through the building


2 Samuel 9:7-8, "So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.” Then he bowed himself, and said, “What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”

rygw - haha. naw.

westworks - thank you very much!

3honu - Thanks! It was a very lucky capture. Not quite sure what it hit, but hope its okay.

designer furn - you can. just frame the possible image and push the button. let it sit for 30 seconds. its easier than it looks. i wish i could take more credit for it, but the camera did all the work. :-)

amck - thank you, i really did luck out.

I was at 'the mosaic' in houston off 288 and mcgregor. we moved in about 3 weeks ago. its a nice place to live.

I love Houston. I'm moving downtown in about a month with my boyfriend. I can't wait to get out of the suburbs. I will have to check that location out soon. That shot is amazing!
