Photographer's Note

It has always interested me as to how one can climb to the top of such a tower. Would it be by ladder, or by steps going round and round. Who climbs such a ladder and what it the purpose? Is a bell run or a light lit?

The city's town hall base structure was built in a gothic style between 1371 and 1404. It is said that the minaret-like tower was inspired by an explorer who had returned from a trip to the Orient (Middle East).

It is difficult to find a tree that can offer contrast and dimension related the tower's size and shape (like the one in the photo). Besides I always like trees that add contrast and bordering to a structure.
