Skewed Scale – Astoria Column

As a wide angle photographer, I can easily skew the scale of an object, making it appear larger than it is.  I love that effect.  So in response to the WordPress weekly photo challenge, here is my take on Scale.  The object in the center is the Astoria Column, a monument in Astoria, Oregon, USA.  The paintings spiraling up the column depict a timeline of the area’s history.  Built in 1926, the 125-foot (38 m)-tall column has a 164-step spiral staircase ascending to an observation deck at the top.  You can see people standing on the deck if you look really hard.  The visitor center sells little balsa wood airplanes that you can launch and watch as they float to the ground.
