Well, they are actually called the Absolute Towers, but everyone refers to them as the Marilyn Monroe because of the shapely curves.

 

I have photographed these before.  I thought I would try them today again due to the heavy cloud cover.  Thought it might make for an interesting B&W.

 

So, after I dropped my daughter off at work, I stopped to take a few images.

Nice series Art! How far away did you have to get from the towers to get both of them totally in the frame with that lens? Jeff

Thanks, Jeff.

Quite a distance.

There is at least one road and two parking lots, big building or mall sizes between me and the towers. Shot at 35mm and not too much cropping.

Other than that, I can show you a link on goodlemaps for a better idea. Let me find the reference.

You are welcome, Jeff. The structure I took the image from is a parking garage roof top level.

Thanks, Dennis.
