Hoover Dam celebrated it's 75th anniversary in 2010.
I was drawn to the art-deco facades, statues etc. that adorned the top of the dam. I made another version of this image in B&W that seems more appropriate to the era when the dam was built, and that's posted here: http://www.edspadoni.com/Photography/The-Great-American-Southwest/15384211_vL5AB#1152858674_cYDBT-M-LB
Not sure which is better. What do you think?
Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the US states of Arizona and Nevada. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression, and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. Wikipedia
