I recently took a drive around to take pictures to update our company website (Realize Structural Engineering, Inc. — if you’d like to take a look or need some structural engineering work in Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, or Montana). This really cool tower is on the property of some apartment buildings. The property used to be a brick yard, and this tower is the only surviving structure from the original buildings. We were hired to ensure that they could save the tower and keep it structurally sound. As part of his inspection, my husband got to go up to the top of the tower and stand by the white light on the top. He loved it. It kind of reminds me of a lighthouse, and I love lighthouses. It’s pretty sad that I live in a very dry place. Anyway, I do also love this tower.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING TOWERS.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

The name suggests a water tower – is it used as such? I quite like the colours of your photo, the complementary blue and orange.
There are several artesian springs in the Salt Lake Valley, so there’s a good chance there is one near this location. This was originally a smokestack and not a water tower.
A church tower that was modified to add a spire:
That is a unique looking tower, almost like the top of one of the old space rockets 😎 Here’s mine: https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2020/08/01/a-photo-a-week-challenge-tower/

thanks for the challenge!
I’m glad they decided to keep that tower – it reminds me of a lighthouse too.
I haven’t joined in for a few weeks, but I’m back with a tower: https://travelwithintent.com/2020/08/02/i360-takes-a-selfie/
Oooooh, I love a good tower.
Just realized I submitted THREE submissions. I guess that is what COVID-19 does to you. Need to get out more. 🙂
No worries. There’s no limit. 🙂
Such an interesting tower. Had to use the Freedom Tower, it carries such meaning, especially when you live so close to it. https://dailymusing57.com/2020/08/03/a-photo-a-week-challenge-tower/
