Superb strucutral specimen.
Nice to see your new avatar - Go Navy...
My father-in-law was in the Navy Reserves during WWII - spent most of it teaching gyroscope theory at the Brooklyn Naval Yard. He looked wonderful in his officer's uniform, must of been what got him the pretty girl from Rye, NY.

That's one tall tower against that pretty blue sky.

Yes, Woodstock passed last night. He was a good looking fellow : )

The power of communication — the top looks like arms beseeching the heavens.

I also like your new avatar, although your camera makes mine look like I got it in a box of Cracker Jacks.

Excellent shot Jacob. I do like repeating geometric shapes. The sky certainly adds to it too.

Olivier said...

ALLO E.T, ici la France ;)

Wolynski said...

Doesn't look that strong, but very graphic photo.

VP said...

This looks like something supernatural and photographed it with the perfect background.

I wonder if my company has any antennas on that tower. I negotiate our leases with tower companies.

Such a fabric of our lives but so ugly.

Whoa---that tower is way tall. It is reaching for the stars through the cloudy sky. MB

I like lines in photos and these are nice as they taper as they rise.

Bibi said...

Yikes. And I'll bet somebody has to climb that tower now and then.

EG Wow said...

It stands tall, that's for sure.

Lois said...

Fabulous shot Jacob! The sky looks amazing.

Daryl said...

And you still cant get a decent connection!

Soaring up but doesn't where. Wonderful shot.

I thought the same thing when I saw ciel's comment about Franco-American. As kids we practically lusted after that Spaghetti---but weren't allowed to eat any. No processed foods for that matter. I just wanted to eat white bread--we had to eat stone ground whole wheat and I remember telling my Mother that I thought they left the stones in the bread. As an adult (well sometimes I am) I realize good food is good for you.
Kylee and I are a good team we have fun together.
Sorry this went on for so long--LOL--MB

Looks very high.
I like your new profile photo, more individual style.

It's reaching for the stars!
