An angled view of the Elks Tower – which has an old basement pool! – that was the first composition of the day.  The straight on view posted a few days ago was the last composition of the day.

Thoughts running through my head as I looked for a composition for the historic Elks Tower: Don’t shoot it straight on.  After two compositions holding to that mantra and another of an entirely different building, I came back and shot the building straight on.  So much for the little voice inside my head.
