All Along the Watchtower • Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #90 is my entry into Tina’s challenge of distance. And it triggered a wonderful song again. While Bob Dylan wrote this multi-layered masterpiece, my favorite performance is the one by Jimi Hendrix (see the link below).

I’d like to point you to the last verse, which ties it back to the prompt of distance:

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

Jimi Hendrix • All Along the Watchtower

There are many interpretations of the lyrics of All Along the Watchtower floating around, see for instance this. My favorite is along the lines of the first, not in the least since I vaguely recall an interview with Bob Dylan where he said something similar…
