The Leaning Tower of Pisa

A childhood dream fulfilled!

Built by Bonanno Pisano in 1174…
completed by Giovanni di Simone, Tommano Simone in mid 14th century…
294 steps to top…
leaning at an angle of 3.97degrees…
sinking at the rate of 1mm every year…

All these facts and more seemed immaterial to me then, I was seeing it for real; the leaning tower of Pisa. I tried to straighten with a tilt of my camera, but the tilted one looks better.
