“There must be some kind of way out of here,”
Said the joker to the thief,
“There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief”.
“All Along the Watchtower” is a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan. The song initially appeared on his 1967 album John Wesley Harding. The song is strongly identified with the interpretation Jimi Hendrix recorded for Electric Ladyland with the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
This is a follow up to my earlier post, The Bridge (see link below). Soon after that photo was taken, I made the long trek up the numerous stairs to the top of the South Pylon. I got to the reception area and asked how much it would cost to go to the top. $11, I was told. I asked if there was an elevator to the top. The girl laughed and said no. I joked that that was thievery, charging me money to walk up a long flight of stairs.
Anyway, once I got to the top of the South Pylon, it really felt like being at the top of a watch tower. Unfortunately I only had a 50mm lens, so no sweeping panoramic shots. Maybe next time.
On the way down I walked past the receptionist and wanted to find the bathroom so I started to head down the stairs that I came up from. She called out to me, “You can’t go that way, that’s the way up only!”. I turned, looked at her and said, “Well, there must be some way out of here. I’m confused and can’t get no relief!” 🙂 🙂 🙂
