Williams Tower - Houston, Texas

This shot of Williams Tower here is one of the first I took with my current camera (5D Mark III). My wife and I went out the night I got it for some long exposure photography. I had not been able to try long exposures before as my previous point-and-shoots were not capable. 

The Williams Tower (originally named and still commonly referred to as the Transco Tower) is a 64-story, 1.4 million sq-ft class A office tower located in the Uptown District of Houston, Texas. The building was designed by New York-based John Burgee Architects with Philip Johnson in association with Houston-based Morris-Aubry Architects (now known as Morris Architects). Construction began in August, 1981 and was completed in December, 1982. The tower is among Houston's most visible buildings and is the 4th-tallest in Texas, the 26th-tallest in the United States, and the 140th-tallest building in the world. The Williams Tower is the tallest building in Houston outside of Downtown Houston, and at the time of its construction was believed to be the world's tallest skyscraper outside of a central business district.
