Photographer's Note

During my first tour in California I visited Simon Rodia's Towers in Los Angeles, a quite strange work of architecture.

It was difficult to find them inside tat huge city, and also more difficulto to fine a POV to shot at them, because these high strange towers have no space around, and are protected by a fence.

I was not able to find any other picture of the towers in Trek Earth, so I decide to create a theme to describe them through many particulars and may be also in their urban context.

Also Wikipedia shows photos not very good - this spbject may be a challenge for photographers!

The work is a superb example of non-traditional vernacular architecture. (.....)
