Having grown up in the 80s, my only Denver experience prior to going there was seeing a couple of shots of downtown Denver in the Dynasty TV show opening sequence. I tried to recreate one shot from the sequence, taken from the capitol hill and featuring a cannon. Here is my shot:


and here is the original:


Clearly things have changed in 30 years. The cannon has been moved so that the view is now obscured by the tree. There's also at least three new buildings that didn't exist in the 80s. And the original shot was taken with a much narrower angle and far closer to the the ground. But, to me, the spirit of Dynasty is still there, even though all of the show was shot in California.
