water tower wednesday - artsy tanks




Read 
about 
an interesting 
'dressing'
 NYC's water tower tanks!

its fascinating to me
to think my obsession
 with 
water towers/tanks 
will grow 
proportionately 
once 
these 
decorated tanks
begin 
appearing
 in spring 
2013



I am sure 
they'll 
be a lot more interesting
than this tank 
I decorated with stickers 
from 
Picnik.com 
just to give you an idea of what this might be like

    Gator of course !!

  9. This way to beautify an utilitarian object is so imaginative and bright!

  10. I think you should shot as many of them as you can and put a book together
    since decorated tanks are new and so few people look up anyway it could be a big hit
    I will escort you to all your signings :)

  11. It would just HAVE to be tastefully and appropriately decorated. No graffiti mess will be allowed. I would like to have a say so in this. My life revolves around them now. People should be allowed to submit ideas. Well, not NC people, but PEOPLE.

    I love your stickers and must have missed this photo :)

    Giving this more thought..hmmmmmm.

  14. I can just see scaffolding going up all around NYC as the project begins, I wonder what themes they'll go with. I agree with Paxie, they should get some input from the folks that are going to have to see them, hmmm mind you, that could be a worry also haha!

  15. I've always been fascinated by the water tanks on buildings in New York. We have tall buildings here, but no water towers on them.

    I love your picnick decorations. I'm still mad that google is shutting picnick down.

  16. It will be fun to see how the towers are transformed. I'm sure they'll be amazing. (It is, after all, New York.) Love your butterflies.
