Now THAT's a boring postcard! Quite sublime!

And I've just spent the last few minutes reading about the complete redesign of Piccadilly Gardens--large elliptical fountain, tilting black granite w/catwalk--oh, hey, I do remember reading about Tadao Ando's pavilion there--and look, the Ramada Manchester Picadilly hotel has been "newly-transformed" with a major refurbishment--well, it's quite the place I'm sure. But the building still looks pretty darn boring, you'll be happy to know.

Note the Union Jack rendered in respendantly accurate 2:1!

Wooh! 2:1 ratio. Doesn't it just set your heart afire with patriotism?
