They call New York the concrete jungle for a reason, it has many buildings that offer beautiful sky lines.

One of the great things about living in California is the mediterranean architecture mixed in with old world brick construction.

This is the new World Trade Center in Manhattan, New York. Some days it get’s so foggy that you can only see the lower half of skyscrapers, creating an interesting effect.

I love the county fair, it offers not only many activities but various colors and themes as well. The ferris wheel is one of the most popular rides for a few reasons, it’s fun and very colorful.

Swing rides always have interesting art all over them, this one happens to focus on the mountains of California. Perhaps to simulate what it would be like to fly through the cold mountain air.
