For a long time now I've been wanting to photograph the side of a skyscraper - head on, not from the ground. Finally the opportunity presented itself on a visit to the Smith Tower in Seattle. The problem now, I can't decide which photo to print, 1 or 2. The craziest thing about the Smith Tower is that a family lives in the very tippy-top pyramid. I wish that part was the tour!
