South Texas Homage to Frank Gehry Architecture

 

I hadn't shot tanks nor towers for months, maybe years before I found the Daisy Factory (at the bottom of this page, because it's the oldest here) so alluring I just had to capture it in mid Jully. But once my eyes were opened to them again — then I compiled my first Tanks & Towers page later that month, more were easy to find and almost eager to fill my mind with their visions.

Up and down the 500+ miles to the Rio Grande Valley and while there, I saw tanks and towers and tank and tower-like objects nearly everywhere I looked. These are they.

Daisy - July 20 2005 - Something so pristine, clear and sharp with all
those white towers glistening in the sunlight. Love the orange wind sox.
