Overpowered and Overtowered?

All Lit Up: Frost Tower iPhoneography © 2105 by Jann Alexander


The ever-vivid Frost Tower is a Texas banking icon and a nighttime beacon standing tall—but no longer the city’s tallest—over Austin’s Warehouse District.

Someday, the Frost Tower may find a place among Austin’s endangered species simply for being dwarfed from view by the many newer skyscrapers overtowering, and overpowering it—judge for yourself from the local icons featured on my Endangered Species of Austin poster HERE.

See all 99+ Austin gems I’ve photographed since 2004, and see which ones are thriving, surviving and gone—but not forgotten—in my Vanishing Austin shopHERE

Photographed with my iPhone 5s and post-processed in vivid color with Adobe Lightroom. For more iPhoneography tips and tricks, click HERE.

  1. When we moved here nine years ago, the tallest things in the Austin skyline were the UT tower, the capitol and the Frost Bank building. The Frost Bank building is my favorite skyscraper ever. But yeah, It’s getting more blocked from view by the day. And it doesn’t feel so skyscraperish anymore. It’s beginning to look positively stocky in comparison to its neighbors.
