that first dusk photo (7 photos down) is probably the thinnest view of the tower.

actually, ive seen shots where you could tell it was getting even thinner, but it only showed the top portion.
would anyone be able to take a full shot of the tower from the angle showing the thinnest part?

West Tower seems so small, i thought they were both about the same height, with the tv tower being taller because of the antenna
