water towers


you know
 i love to look up
 its how
 i came to notice
 all
 the water tanks
 water towers
that 
dot the skyline

 a water tower
 silhouetted 
against
 a mashed potato sky
 shot 
through 
naked tree branches
 for me
 is the
 perfect
 the ultimate
 photograph

 and

 if you look closely
 you will see 
there are 
two towers
 in this shot

 and

 for once
 whilst
 using the iPhone 4's
 pitiful
 4 'megapixel' camera 
i did not
 wish 
i had 
zoom

 i know ca-zazy!

  6. I keep wondering when you'll run out of creative ways of focusing on your water tower motif, but you remain remarkably inventive.

  9. love this shot!
    looking up is fab.
    so MANY people do not look up, that it allows me to hide christmas presents in plain sight. in the house, of course. i would never hide presents at a water tower. that would just be weird.

    of course now i know, if you're ever at my house, i should not hide your presents on the tops of cupboards. you'll see them.

  10. I love it too. Surprisingly my Samsung S3, has an 8mp camera... but the digital zoom is for the birds!

  11. Lovely! I always love bare branches...and you know how I feel about the water towers! (iPhone has only 4mp camera? I'm planning on getting the Galaxy Note this summer, and it has an 8mp camera. I would like to have a good phone camera...why?? )

  14. Not crazy at all Daryl, you couldn't have taken a more blissful image no matter how much more lens power you had..this has so many elements to it that may have been different.
