water towers

oh boy
The Empire State Building
a crisp autumnal sky
taken last October
and
two water tower/water tanks
do you see the second one?
its almost out of frame
and
 what's up 
with
 that 
odd cylinder 
holding up 
that 
tank?

There was a story on the news today about the man who has built these NY water towers for years. I'm sorry I didn't catch his name, but he sure takes pride in his work.

I LOVE the pics you post of water towers (well, I love ALL your pics, but coming from a village that has one small water tower, I find this beyond fascinating!) I am going to go "googling" for more info...Thanks for the great "views."

Oh yes I see the second one, though I don't think I would have spotted it had you not said there was one!

The one on the cylinder looks like it's hiding in Hide and Seek by pressing its back against the wall! Good post!

I was going to ask about that cylindrical "stand" too.

Yup I see the second one, you know what it needs? It needs a cylinder to stand on to make it taller haha!

Do you think it's a double decker?

Almost missed that second tank! And I want to know what's in that cylinder.

We were right there, and I didn't get to go in. It's a lovely picture.

Daryl, great shot! Weird, but every time I see the Empire State building I think of King Kong!

Neat cylinder to sit upon:) I like the peek of the Empire State Building:)

Cloudia said...

yeah, nice shiny cylinder that strangely echoes the mast atop the E.S. Bldg!

NIfty buildings.
I found the water tower, too.
Way to go, Daryl. You're making me feel more confidence in my ability to look at and see things.

Great pic, I'm saving my one water tower pic for a special occasion.

Cylinders are great structurally. If done right.
