A view from Hohensalzburg castle with the old town in the foreground. It shows a carnival (fun-fair) in progress.

As can be seen from my collection of skyline
p;, I too have
taken panoramas from tops of garages, but I catch
the lift to the top and shoot from there.
Regarding security, check this out: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/29037/snap
shots/90593/ This dude is taking a photo of
my car with his cell phone since I parked there on
a Sunday afternoon and he had nothing else to do.
Lots of security-video cameras all of the Texas

Yeah Houston is something else, David. I remember
taking pictures from the observation deck of the
Texas Commerce Tower in the mid 1980s and being
told by a security guard that professional photos
were forbidden because "the view is
copyrighted"! In this case, the castle had an
outdoor balcony. I'm also a fan of parking
garages. Your fee gives you the right to be there
and you can drive right up to the place you want

Tom, your knack for gaining access to rooftops
amaze me. Here in Houston, we are at war and it is
impossible for me or anyone to gain access to
open-air roofs, so the work that you exhibit is
pretty amazing. This GigaPan as well as the
Downtown Minneapolis GigaPan, www.gigapan.org/gigapans/29680/
, are really spectacular.
