Photographer's Note

This is Dallas, Texas believe it or not. This is the rooftop of the Adolphus Hotel, built in 1912 and was the tallest building in Texas at that time. This view is from my 17th floor window across the street. It was built by Adolphus Busch, the German immigrant, of Anheuser Busch (Budweiser) beer fame (worst tasting pisswater in the world!) He wanted to build on the corner where Dallas City Hall stood, and indeed it was torn down to make way for the hotel.
This is also the hotel that wouldn't allow Sasha Cohen (as Borat) to check in, in the movie, though they have accepted Elizabeth II in the past!
