A while back I promised you some photos from my visit to the Watts Towers, so why not today? Here are a pair of pictures of the towers in the early morning light, along with two close-ups that show how the towers are constructed. I oversaturated the top photo on the left to show off some of the color of the towers, but it’s hard to get it right at such a small size and in such brilliant light. An overcast day probably would have been better.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
