I'm reminded of Columbo ;)
“You take our friend here, the murderer. He’s very smart, but he’s an amateur. I mean, he’s got just one time to learn. Just one. And with us cops, well – it’s a business. We do this a hundred times a year. I’ll tell ya, doc, that’s a lot of practice.”

It's never my intention to poke fun at amateurs.

It was not at all my intention suggest or insinuate anything of the kind.

^good on ya, Karl.

e: I know you don't post often in this thread, but when you do it's always with a minimum of fuss and cliche. As a result the photos are invariably interesting enough to stop me scrolling.
Anyway, that shot is cool - the open windows here and there along with the overall subtle keystoning makes it look like a kind of architectural sprezzatura. Good stuff.

Hello from Boston.

The contrast between the old iron streetlights and sleek modern building is probably very Bostonian.
