Someone wanted to build a bridge, but someone on the other side didn't want him to.
Someone wanted to build a more permanent beanstalk, but ran out of money.
This used to be the tallest May Pole in the world until it was struck by a lightening.
A small man wanted to compete with the surrounding trees. You know, "Mine's bigger"??? Naughty!
Original plan for Washington Monument, until the Pioneers found out it rains a lot in DC?
This is actually a tiny piece of metal (like a watch part) but you did some fancy photo work.
A tall guy's bar stool.
Me building a house; I always start things with a big bang and then get bored quickly.
A paint company's rust test pole.
Something for the railroad, except the guys didn't read the plans right, so this one went vertical.
George Waashington burried a rusty nail 230 years ago this is what's growing now.
But in all seriousness, I hope it's not related to 9/11 and the Pentagon.

none of my explanations will compare to Meg's brilliant Musings... but the truth shall set us free?? or something like that..

It really is simply a rusty pillar. ;)

We took the metro (redline to Cleveland Park ) to get to the Woodly Park Zoo *( it's a equal walk from both Cleveland Park exits & Woodly Zoo exit, but it's DOWNHILL from Cleveland Park!)
you basically walk down Connecticut Avenue and cross a bridge ... and pass TWO starbucks... before you get to the Zoo.

on the bridge I spotted this rusty pillar.. it seemed to have no other purpose (anymore anyway) than to be shot for DP... and with the sky cooperating as it was, I couldn't resist. =)

see.. I told you Meg was more interesting! ;)

sometimes a rusty pillar is just a rusty pillar...

that is until our imagination makes it so much more!
