Alternative View

Sometimes I consider the tall clusters of broadcasting towers on Capitol Hill and Queen Anne (seen here) to be an eyesore, much like I thought of the giant Sutro Tower in San Francisco that used to loom over the hill outside our third floor kitchen window and blink at me like Big Brother as I prepared dinner in the evenings. I called it the Martian Tower. Sometimes, though, we can look at things a little differently and make out of their mundane and utilitarian form something more interesting, colorful and more pleasing to view. Not quite la Tour Eiffel, but still a bit sparkley!

A very creative approach and beautiful result, Dreamy, almost hallucinatory. Our posts today have similar overall composition but different ways to overcome a literal view.
