A Tall Story

Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound
Yes, I bet Superman would have a field day with this one. This is Big Sky, a Credit Union. Located at 607 Bourke Street, this imposing looking ediface almost gave me a crick in my neck as I stood trying to get off a decent shot. While I'm not sure just how tall it is, it reminded me of the song, "When I was small and Christmas trees were tall"


Today's Quote: A skyscraper is a boast in glass and steel ~ Mason Cooley.

I quite love skyscrapers, probably because we haven't many around here.
Happy Birthday to your blog and my compliments to you.
I really envy some of your cold...
