Thanks, Glenda! This only castle is sitting all alone in a park in the middle of the city of Worcester. Time has just sort of passed it by.

Excellent POV . You have to love the textures. You even got the sky to cooperate. Nice shot.

Thanks, Mark! I was lucky to be able to find a position where the parked vehicles and bollards in front of the entrances were hidden from view.

Truly a Masterpiece. Love the way the textures just jump out and grab me. Do you know the History behind it?

Thank you so much, Chuck! This is Bancroft Tower in Worcester, MA. It was built in 1900 by a wealthy philanthropist to honor George Bancroft who is most know for founding the U.S. Naval Academy. It is now closed, but makes for a beautiful (though hidden) landmark.
