Cool structure, the way you have framed it makes it look like one of those child sketches of spaceships from Julio Verne's book!

@Alfredo J. Martiz J.: Yes, I thought so! Thanks Alfredo!

It looks like it belongs inside of something. I was watching some of the extras with "There Will Be Blood" and it showed them cleaning an oil pipeline with a "Go-Devil" that looked something like this.

@Twelvebit: I've yet to see that movie, not sure if its even been on the cinemas in Japan yet...

Interesting tower with what seems to be 3 spotlights.

@Isaac: It is a communications tower, but definitely a bit rocket-like! Thanks Isaac.
