Default Lower Point of View - Tokyo Tower

I hope you don't mind a sightly older image - I shot this of the Tokyo Tower in Tokyo (!) Japan several years ago when I was visiting.

I like it, the color of the tower against the blue sky is very cool. When I first looked at it I got a bit disoriented, but the more I looked at it, the more it made sense and the more I liked it.

Thanks everyone! This was the tallest tower (1,090 feet) in Japan until the Sky Tree opened in 2010 to better service digital TV broadcasting. Here is a stock photo. I was standing next to one of the 4 supporting "feet", looking up:

Great perspective, and I particularly like how you can see the bolts / rivets in the foreground.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for adding the stock photo. It adds to the drama of the original image.
