Thank you for my comment! LOL first no comment challenge... Congratulations Great Christmas Present!! Disney Hall??? Is that like in Disney Land?? Been there once, was so excited by all the characters I didn't pay attention to a lot of other stuff... (yeah you guessed it was just a couple of years ago, I acted like a kid)

Wow, you have owned the yellow for the last month. Congrats on another. When I read this challenge even I thought of this structure and of a couple of cool pictures you have taken of it (if I recall correctly Where's Waldo and a vague memory of one or two others). You just keep getting better.
