  2. I thought "hater" at first glance, too.
    Beautiful shot, Daryl. I've always admired your great eye for architectural angles.

  3. Thought the same... Love the angle you shot at and all those curvy details. They should make buildings like that today, but although they're sometimes beautiful, most are just to streamlined and dull.

  8. Hah! Funny you pointed out what it DOESN'T say. My first read of it was that it said EXACTLY that, and I was ready to make some wise-ass comment.

  11. It only took me four times to see that it didn't say Hater. And I swear I just had an eye appointment this morning.

    I demand a refund.
