May's Monthly Challenge,
Hmmm. picking a topic isn't as easy as one might think! I've decided on going tall. I'm thinking towers, cell phone tower, radio, water, bell, well you get the idea. the only limit is no buildings, bell towers are excepted.
have fun.

As usual, entries must be taken with a Pentax or Samsung dSLR and within the last 90 days. Please have the longest side be 800 pixels as this keeps everything easier to compare pictures.

here is one example but not an entry.
Clarion bell tower.

If you are looking from the perspective of an ant, I'd say sure.

Default Hot Springs Mountain Tower

I'm going to put this one up for now, although I have a different idea if I get time to go shoot it the next few days.

Love the topic! I can think of all kinds of subjects that would fit this, but all of them would require a day trip somewhere. But that's OK - gives me an excuse to go for a drive to someplace interesting.

Pure tourist attraction...great view of the city and surrounding Ouachita Mountains....and eight bucks to ride to the top. I don't go up there to shoot too often....
