A very informative picture. Has anyone told Norman Foster that Michael Virlogeux put one over on him?

Congratulations Max

Your the first to see that Virloguex put one over on Norman Foster, I have not had his comment yet, but am sure he will comment in due course!

Greetings from the Millau Suspension Bridge

Best wishes. ...Gordon...

I dunno, Gordon, whether it's a waste of time to wait for Monsieur Virlogeux or Lord Foster to comment on the TRUE structure of the Viaduc Millau. For example, my picture of the layby in Northern California where Kary Mullis had the inspiration for PCR has been up in Panoramio for almost 2 years: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/40747831 and nary a comment from him. So you should keep hoping but don't hold your breath.

I think your right Max,

Guess we will probably wait forever, I have looked at your picture of the layby where the inspiration took place, I wanted to comment on the very picture but for some reason it would not open with a comment box, it went full screen, but the pictures either side allowed comments to be made, so perhaps this is why you have never had a comment, rather strange as I have never experienced that situation before. I did have a look at some of your other pictures and will revisit as I see there are some interesting photos there including a few from Hong Kong in 1988, I was thwere in 1957-60, so I have some real old ones in my gallery

Cheers for now. ......Gordon......
