water tower wednesday - contrasts

is likely the entrance to the building's 
elevator housing 
it sits alongside 
the water tower on this tall-ish apartment building  

love the red painted fire escapes 
the old discolored bricks 
the contrast 
with the newish building 
being relative in building age years


  1. I enjoy seeing the water towers and the contrast of the different building styles. Nice shot!

  2. You cannot go wrong with deep red and green colouring Daryl, it's like that building is in Christmas mode all year round!!

  3. Just full of interesting stuff! The red and the green, the great facade and, of course, a nice water tower.

  4. I so love contrasts in cities. This is great; says so much.

  5. Yes, there is lots to look at here including the lines on the building on the right and that curtain/window covering on the second window from the top on the left.

  6. I agree with Caite -- so much to look at here. The facade is great.

  7. Glad you pointed out the fire escape it would have totally escaped my attention!

  8. The black and white on the top of the tower and of course the
    red beach towel in the window. Love the colors, Daryl!!

    Great shot :)

  9. The red fire escapes were the first thing I noticed here.
    Love this focal point!

  10. you are a woman of the streets- Wait!

    I better rephrase that!

  11. Thanks for the info. I never would have thought of there being a water tower on top of the building....I'm showing my small town roots here. Since Birmingham is so hilly, we don't have a need for as many water towers as other places might.

  12. Interesting how the facade at the left juts out, and I wonder what brought about the crack at top right of the facade (and whether, if I lived there, I should be worried!)
