I often re-tweet cool-looking pics. Today I decided to look through them, picking out the best. However, endless scroll turned out to have an end, at least in IE and Chrome on Windows 7, so I was only able to see my tweets since the start of this year. I've been using Twitter since April of 2014, so this is a small percentage of what I was looking for.

As I've written here before, I often hang out at skyscraperpage.com. Here are some good pics of New York that I saw there recently.

At a large percentage of the island's buildings anything higher than the 20th floor is enough. And actually, these pics do not do it full justice. I guess the pixel count is not sufficient to compete with real life.
Below are some of the pics that I grabbed from the Net at different times to use as desktop backgrounds.
This is the Scarlet Sails festival in St. Petersburg.
The Hohenzollern Castle from which the Prussian kings originated.
