The Book Tower
By idiotphotographer in Detroit
The Book Tower is not named for books, but the builder, Mr. Book. It is right in the heart of downtown Detroit and a fine example of some the magnificent architecture Detroit has to offer. When first constructed the plan was to have a mirror building across the street, but the money ran out so it stands alone. And FYI, last picture is very slightly NSFW, if you have a puritanical boss.
The first shot is a throw away but I am including just so you get some idea of how massive this building is:
Wide angle lens equals falling down building look.
This is when you break out the zoom and go for the details.
As an added bonus the building is decorated in naked ladies that are almost not noticeable from street level.
