Together

This summer, we visited Taliesen, the Frank Lloyd Wright estate. I took several blog-themed photos there and then never got around to posting them. Here's the first...

This is the Romeo and Juliet tower, constructed in the late 1800s to bring water to a school on the site. Its unique design ensured that the two, entwined structures would stand for many decades. Indeed, because they are together, they are stronger and more wind-resistant than either would have been were it standing on its own.

  8. He really seems to have been a prick in his personal life, but built such fine things. Never been to the eastern compound.
