Tower, Alton Illinois

Here’s a tower… deal. Since I’m on an Alton kick. It’s printed a bit flat… someday I’ll probably scan the negative and pump up the contrast in a few spots, but for now, I’m kinda digging all the similar mid-tones. I think.

Prince: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair…”

Rapunzel: “Not a chance, dude. Do you know how long it takes me to condition all this stuff? Get a friggin’ rope. Then we can talk.”

    • Thanks, Binky!
      I’d love to tell you I spent hours setting this one up, but in all honesty, it was pretty cold and windy out when I took this… pretty much a click and run job…

  1. It does look cold doesn’t it? I think you keep posting Alton images because you subconsciously want to go to Alton and get a peach with me! See? I’ve got you all figured out man. 😛

      • Hahahaha remember the other day when I totally read your mind and freaked you out? Now I can’t even remember what I knew you were thinking but the point is I knew… I sooo knew!

        P.S. PEACHES!

        P.P.S. I like your haircut. 🙂

  2. This looks just like the tower I climbed last night to get to the park in NYC that used to be an abandoned above-ground subway track. I kind of love the emptiness in the background of yours. I won’t tell you how out of breath I was when I got to the top of mine.
