The Sign and the Tower
I don't have a version of this photo shot well enough to meet my standards of quality for feature on this blog, but once upon a time, the photo below would have featured a key difference--the entire Tower of Terror show building would have been visible from this exact same perspective. Over time, the trees planted in the area have matured, and in particular, the palm trees have covered what used to be one of my favorite angles of photographing the Hollywood Tower Hotel. The angle and juxtaposition is cool, in my opinion at least, so I think it's a shame that the vegetation has detracted from that a little bit. But such is the way of the world. Too bad Photoshop isn't good enough to completely remove the palm trees and restore the missing part of the building!
