#668. Towers

Taken this past Saturday at the American Shooting Center in George Bush Park in Houston, Texas. The event was the annual Homes for Our Troops Sporting Clay tournament. I assume towers like the one in the foreground used to be used as a platform for the machines used to launch the clays. While these types of towers are still present on the grounds they have been abandoned in favor of steel towers with platforms mounted on an elevator mechanism that raises the thrower to the desired height.
