      Wow, how did you get here? Yes, I had read how we were working on keeping our buildings cool and recycling CO2. A nice view of the Chicago Loop.

      Yes, the colours are wonderful. I like how the grass, flowers, and bird house (?) are more vibrant than the city background.

      railwalker de - thanks! 'green design' is quite popular right now. china is looking to chicago for inspriation, as beijing hopes to use green design in the construction for the 2008 olymipcs.

      Very clever.....great accent on the colour-difference between city and city-garden.

      i love the nature/city contrast, and i especially love how the flowers and grass look more "real", dynamic and vibrant than the urban background. great shot.
