We went out on Friday night in search of a parking structure from which Enrique Gutierrez and I could take some downtown architecture shots. We finally found one, drove up 7 stories to the roof, and then I spied a stairway near the elevator column. I wandered over to the stairway and noticed that there were three more floors above us, and then a ladder, and then a hatch to the roof above the elevator shaft. We got about 45 minutes of shooting in before it started to drizzle.
