September 11th in my neighborhood

Just a couple of blocks west of my woodshop, there is an amazing sculpture in someone's backyard. The first time I noticed it, I thought I hadn't seen it correctly - twin towers in North Las Vegas?

They appear to be made of metal, with holes punched in them, and at night - they're illuminated from within. It makes both of the structures appear as if they're office buildings, bustling with activity.

I've been meaning to drop a postcard in the mail to tell the homeowner how cool these are, but never have. When I was there today, shooting these images, there were cars pulling off to the side of the road, looking up at the towers.

What a surprising little treasure in my neighborhood!
