  7. Now that's a water tower with personality and not one you'd expect to find in the city! I love it!

    Have a great weekend, Daryl!

  8. I pays to look up now and then! And this has such 'water tower charm'--unlike the sleek and humungous ones out here.
    Happy Friday, my friend!

  9. A little buckshot into the side of that, and you'd have a shower.

    Cool shot!

  12. If I didn't know better, I'd think this was a rural scene! A great "unseen" NY shot!

  13. Now imagine if that just tipped up one way...
    It reminds me of the buckets that fill with water in the children's swimming pool. :0)

  16. As water towers go, one on the upper West Side is not too hard to take!

    I miss NY!!! We are overdue for a visit.

  17. Oh yes - that is a real old fashioned water tower. I haven't seen one like that in a long time.

  18. Can you top this?

    Love water towers and I photograph everyone I can...is this on top of a roof? Must be. Where else in Manhattan?

  19. It is so interesting to see that water tank in the city! I love your angle shot!

  20. How high does a gal have to climb to get a shot like that (even with a zoom)and not get a crick in her neck? Neat.

  22. I love the old water towers in the city. It's nice to see one of these up close.
    Though they are not really old as much as they are old looking, right?

  23. I'm w/MPM. Petticoat....JUNCTION!

    I should be upstairs sorting through my closet. Instead, here I am visiting YOU! BTW - it's all your fault my closet is a mess. Yup, that's what I'm tellin' the hubs.

    Love those ~up~ photos. They're the best!

  24. Great shot! Afternoons must be really heating up the water I guess on an open sky sunny day!!!

  28. Nice shot of the water tower and the sky. thanks for sharing your skywatch.

  29. Water towers here all seem to look the same. The one in your photo has character!

  30. Why does Bruce Springsteen start playing in my head when I look at this?

    I love it, by the way.

  31. Seriously? Not what I'd expect to see in NYC!

  32. Oh, these are some of my favorite things to dance on the skyline of our city. I have a whole series of water tower shots that i will be exhibiting in the spring.
    Four from the series are going to be used to decorate the apartment of the New York character in the upcoming series "V"
    I like your photograph and love the subject.
    It seesm people are surprised that N.Y. has water towers!
    I find that even the newer buildings going up have these old systems of delivering water pressure only that the architects have chosen to surround them with concrete for aesthetic and possibly other reasons.
    great subject, and I am very familiar with most bus routes in New York
    Thanks for dropping by by blog, Daryl.
