Scale with Foshay Tower in Minneapolis

Foshay Tower Minneapolis

Foshay Tower in the Minneapolis downtown is one of the iconic and the most recognizable buildings of Twin Cities. You simply cannot miss it. Till 1972, it was the tallest skyscraper of Minneapolis, with a height of 607 ft and 32 floors. Built in 1929, it has been now converted into W Minneapolis – The Foshay Hotel. Watching it from the Nicollet Mall in the downtown, i saw these flowers on a clear day and could not resist to click Foshay Tower in the background. In this photo, either it could be these flowers dwarfing the tall Foshay Tower or the grandeur of Tower eclipsing the beautiful flowers in scale. It depends upon how you look at it. What do you think?

    wonderful take on the theme. I feel these beautiful flowers are trying to dwarf the tall Foshay Tower. 🙂

    The foreground and the background both make a lovely picture. The bright flowers against the light shade of the building works well. Great picture, Suyash.
