I'm an old fashioned girl at heart and when it comes to architecture I prefer
old buildings. Architects and planners get very excited at the prospect of
modern and I know there is a place for it, and some modern buildings

Visibility was less than 40 miles but not as limited as we thought it would be. Considering
the blanket cloud cover, and taken behind glass, I was quite pleased with my photos.

I will leave you with this thought - we didn't think to ask if those windows were
blacked out from the outside, but at that height only passengers in low flying
aircraft or the window cleaners would get a good view !!!
