Certainly not, the signage quite clearly states that holding cameras on the rollercoaster is strictly forbidden!

I was on the ground, I achieved the effect of height with, er, prisms...

Just back from Italy - Pompeii is fantastic - make sure and arrive early to avoid the crowds though.
I thought I had a grasp of archeology , but I didn't realise the size of the place , that it is an entire walled Roman town 8O

Not technically holiday pics cos I transferred to our New York office for a couple of years. Snapped these from the 23rd floor:


This is Grand Central and its reflection in the glass walls of the Hyatt on 42nd Street

Some of the prettiest architecture are the roof tops of the older buildings. This one is nice surounded, as it is, by nondescript concrete and glass boxes:
Image

Here is another rooftop. A wee bit blurry .....
Image

And the obligatory view of the Chrysler building

Business trip to Los Angeles and San Francisco. LA snaps were taken from an office on the 50th floor. SF snaps from an office on the 20th floor.
