escalating


With all the buildings, it's only natural to have escalators. If only we had Superman's ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound. I wouldn't mind leaping from one floor to another to get to the shops I need to get to. I tend to walk quite briskly and get caught in a sea of human traffic due to shorter legs taking shorter strides.

So many floors. So many escalators. It's either up or down. All day, everyday. Doesn't matter really. As long as I get there.

LMAO! Edwin...at all de past few days' comments...and all de "in-u-endo"...ahhhhhhhhhhh, it's enuf to cure wat ails ya! Why am I suddenly talkin' Jamaican? Must be the cold I had...rewired something...speaking of rewiring...well not really, that is NOT a NORMAL-looking escalator EDDIE! Where the heck are the steps? And where is it going? And why are the rails so close together? It's NOT an escalator--You're just bustin' our balls Edwin!

Your pictures are getting so big Ben just upgraded our access plan - a bit more expensive, but quicker and hopefully with more grunt... But I have to tell you, I do have a small screen on my laptop, so I'm seeing your pics in bits and pieces..... Hee hee.... And yes, we do sit next to each other and look at all the DPs on separate computers and sometimes, we're staring at the same photo on 3 different computers... Silly, I know, but great fun.

Strange picture Edwin, looks more like a reflection than a head on shot.

Hey Anne, hope you're well! ;)

I love your comments guys! Ok, this is how the shot was taken. I took it from the bottom inbetween 2 escalators. Then I flipped the image.

Yes, Santy. Thanks for pusing. You got it!

It's so cool how everyone saw it differently.

Spaceship, Kala? Good one!

Pod, no worries man. I sometimes wonder myself if the teeth will one day bite in retaliation to the weight of people standing on them. ;)

I was scratching my head trying to see what sort of a "special" escalator this was...then I saw the comments! Phew! ;P
