my sky

another water tower
they are
all you need do is

Last water tower post someone asked in the comments section 'weren't the city names painted on the towers' (answer: this is New York City and there are a bazillion water towers, none so far that I have seen have NYC on them) and another wondered if the tower in question 'supplied water to the little rooftop chalet or the whole city' (answer: that water tower supplied water not just to that little chalet but to the entire building the chalet is perched atop, every building has its own water tower, amazing but true).

I would have loved to reply to those questions right then but the comments were made by two 'no-comment' commenters.

  1. Love that stunning shade of blue - yay for summer skies!

    My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  2. Ah, blue skies and water for all,
    what could one wish for more?

  3. Love that vivid blue sky! And, yes, water for all!! Marvelous capture as always, Daryl! Have a great weekend!


  4. Call me stoopid but I never noticed a water tower in NYC when I was there, and if asked I'd probably guess you didn't have them there! Now I am educated thank you!

    BTW - your comments page seems to take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to open for me the past few weeks?! And from home or work, so it's not the PC.

  5. Another great water tower shot and a beautiful sky too.

  6. Miss Daryl, this made me giggle, because I have an inside joke about water towers and a post almost ready to go about them. Great minds. And a cool capture because I, too, would never associate a water tower with a major metro environment -- whaddo I know!

  7. "Blue skies, smilin' at me... nothin' but blue skies from now on..."

    This one just makes me sing!

  8. Who'd a thought that all that water was towering over NYC? Not I.

    Beautifully composed and wonderful color. Looks like a Florida sky.

  9. I love water towers...especially this one!
    And, I love your comment tutorial~

  10. thanks for answering my question about city names on water towers.

  11. Wow a vibrant blue sky! Had to be close to noon since there is barely a shadow? Each building has its own water tower? What happens if everyone in the building takes a shower at the same time? Just askin....

  12. Pleased to see another water tower, just one of loads you have yet to capture. Great sky too!

  13. Now that is a Blue sky...but no clouds around...were they hiding?

  14. Yes! They are everywhere... and this lovely one is made of wood? Very interesting. :D
    You have clear blue skies!!! Good for a day out.

    Have a good weekend.

    Alex's World! -

  15. What is it about water towers? I love them too. And with a gorgeous blue background like that, who wouldn't?

  16. Love this water tower against that blue sky!

  17. This is great. I am wondering what the Petticoat Junction girls would say if they could finally swim to the top and see they are in NYC.

    In response to the commenter who wondered about the location names on towers: I would like to hire Ziggy to run around with spray paint and tag "you are here" on all those towers.

    Love your shots.

  18. mawaaaaah for giving them the solution, hope some follow it.
    and Ahhh, hummm? does that hose fill the tank ?? just need to giggle to day, cool post.

  19. Great sky shot.. all the clouds
    are down this way.

    The smaller towns have name tags,
    but G'ville is too big and refined
    for tagging the towers here. A nice
    gator logo would work.!!

  20. Love the way the tower is standing upto the sky.

  21. The lovely blue background makes the water tower looks great :)

  22. We LIKE your water tower shots!
    Keep 'em coming...

  23. Looks like a very beautiful bright sunny weather. Great for outdoors. =)

  24. It's amazing what's revealed just by looking up.

  25. Life is looking up. But seriously, there's a tower on every building?? That's a lotta towers.

  26. Summer skies are always providing such pretty hues of blue!
