30 Word Thursday: Tower


The dark eidolon looms above our cluttered lives.
A solid brick tower of sameness and conformity,
Rising to the sky bringing despair on those beneath its heavy shadow.
Challenge this!
This edition of 30 Word Thursday was taken whilst wandering through downtown St. Paul a few weeks ago.  I got a little emo in this one...sorry!  Check out the other folks contributing to this blog-hop at the Treasures Found Blog.

This is a GREAT photo and like something out of science fiction, with your words suiting it perfectly!

Steadfast and at the same time ominous.Love the contrast between the light and dark. And your words could be the opening lines for a movie trailer.

I had to look up the meaning of eidolon, and the word fits perfectly. Really a great photo this week.

Thanks guys. Sorry to make you look stuff up...this is my excuse to use some big words and get more bang for my buck! And yes, I'm a sci-fi movie geek and this totally came from that place...

This is at once formidable and artful. I love the contrast and the perspective. Great words too! I agree. It could be the start of a movie trailer! Enjoy the day. Erin
