New Monday Photo Shoot: Tower Power

"I'll pull you from your tower, take away your pain. Show you all the beauty you possess, if you only let yourself believe."

-Sarah McLachlan

New Monday Photo Shoot #15: Photograph a tower, lightning struck or otherwise. It can be a skyscraper, a silo, a turret, an observation platform, or even a CD rack. Whatever it is, if it's a tower, let's see it!

-Karen Funk Blocher, of the blog, Outpost Mavarin

Once again, I am at a loss for some fresh photos. I am planning to head over to San Francisco to some of my favorite haunts, but until then, it's into the archive for me. I hope it's ok to use previously posted photos, it's been at least a couple years since I first showed you these. The main photo in this entry is of the Ferry Building, along the San Francisco Embarcadero. It was all lit up with special lighting to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906.

Here are a couple more Bay Area Towers...

Coit Tower, and the Golden Gate Bridge. I took this photo one day, while driving into San Francisco by way of the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Bridge.

Oh, I like all three of these. Love the purple lighting on the first one, and can't decide whether it spells out a word. The round one in the middle shot is very unusual and intriguing. And the Tribune one reminds me of Toronto for some reason. And Venice. And maybe Cardiff!

Great towers! I'm going to have to go look through archives for this weeks Monday Photo Shoot too. I better get on it soon!
