Lunchtime Photo

A while back I promised you some photos from my visit to the Watts Towers, so why not today? Here are a pair of pictures of the towers in the early morning light, along with two close-ups that show how the towers are constructed. I oversaturated the top photo on the left to show off some of the color of the towers, but it’s hard to get it right at such a small size and in such brilliant light. An overcast day probably would have been better.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
