looking up


yeah 
water towers 
amazingly
 i wasnt looking for one
 had no intention of posting one
 after all
 i had
 'run out' 
of
 water tower inspiration

 clearly
 the towers
 have a mind of their own

 i went to the dentist on tuesday morning
 took the m104
 got off at columbus circle 
because
 i am 
neurotic
 about
 not being late
 i was very early
 so 
i wandered a bit
 took some photos to share 
took a different route

 normally
 i would have walked directly down 57th street 
instead
 i walked down 58th
 a whole new vista was opened to me
 and
 you

 there's that construction site
 with
 three backhoes
 some interesting contrasting styles of architecture
 and 
2 water towers
 who knew?

 i ended up on 7th avenue 
where i took some more photos
 before
 heading to 57th
 and
 the dentist's office

  1. That's a beautifully framed and constructed image Daryl! I really love everything about it from the colours to the structure. :)

  3. Nice shot, lots going on. The one tower sure is on a rickety base way up in the air. Whazzupwiththat?

  4. It's such a big city, it boggles the mind. I would long for the sky if I was surrounded by so many buildings. Still, I'd love to visit and walk around taking photos!

  7. Daryl, great vista! Including the water towers! I like the way my eye goes from close to far and there's so much to see in-between!

  10. :-)
    I have the very same issues about being late for things!
    Glad you were early enough to find this.
    I love the backhoes in the foreground.

  11. Love that water tower that's closest.

    Columbus Circle...I've seen it at Christmas time, all lit up from that delightful restaurant Robert with good friends and a great tour guide...who takes great water tower pictures.

  12. Since I'm a tried and true tourist, I'm always looking up when I'm in NYC. I find myself saying excuse me a lot. AND I'm an early person, almost always. At the podiatrist's office on Tuesday - Martha to Receptionist: When is Dr. Z. going to see me? I've been waiting an hour! Receptionist to Martha: He's running late. It's his first day back from vacation. Martha: I know BUT I've been waiting an hour! Receptionist: Well, if you had shown up on time instead of 1/2 hr. early, you would have only been waiting a 1/2 hr. Martha retreats back to her chair. Note to Martha: bring a book next time and read the sign: Patients are seen according to their appointment time. Not according to the time they arrive. BTW, great shot!
