Hello Dom - like your TO shots.  Different angles for Old City Hall  
etc.  Isn't it fun to walk around with the M8, and that 28 is a  
fantastic lens.

BTW, don't know what imageware you are using but the images on the  
LUG are huge, and it take for ever to download them.  Suggest you  
resize them for the web prior to posting.
