Hi Bill...

I've noticed several of your other architectural photographs over the past several weeks. You definitely have a talent and skill for this kind of photography, and this one is not an exception. Very nice work.

I have memories of this tower, and immediately recognized it when I saw your photograph. It's nice to see it so serene and peaceful.

Thanks
Tom

Is this not the same tower memorialized by Kinky Friedman? It wasn't always so peaceful.

Congrats on WA win Bill! That was one "schweeeeeeet" composition!
Great image as stated...I might have cloned out those darn antennas atop the parapet but that is just me.
Yes postcard!

Was around when Whitman used the tower to practice his carefully taught sniper skills. The image is beautiful, but for me, haunting.

Whitman wasn't the first (nor the last) casualty here rather than there.

Going brought no honor. Surviving brought no peace.
I remember - nay can never forget -
Those lost there, and those lost coming "home."

Something about the trees framing the tower makes it feel off-kilter, unlevel. It is level. I like the people for scale. Beautiful job capturing a memorial to a sad day in history.

Thanks for your comment. I see that you are in Kety, so I hope all is well after Harvey hit your area.
