3 water towers 3 water towers


okay
 so
 the top of the one closest is cut off
 i tried to get it in the shot
my 35mm was not wide enough

 nevertheless
 there
 are 
3 others 
the last one down the line 
is 
hard to see
 its in shadow

 so look hard

 the opportunity to photograph them
 was the promise of my lurker friend susan 
whose apartment
 i visited
 a few weeks ago 

it was
 from 
her window
 the photo
 of 
the little houses on pomander walk 
were taken

still need
 to
 get back to see those 
from
 the ground

 speaking of ground
 we took
 two nice walks
 this past weekend 
the longer
was about 3 miles
 its the long loop 
uptown past the gardens 
down along the river
 to pier one
 then
 up the stairs 
carefully
  through the park to 79th

 its a good walk

 the second walk was the sunday
a short up to the garden and back

walking back 
looking out onto the river
a huge tanker
seemed to be anchored 
 toonman 
suggested 
i take a photo

 i considered it 
 walking
 looking
 out
 off 

walked
 right 
into
 a 
lamp post

neither 
the camera nor the lamp post 
were 
hurt
suffered 
the embarrassment of being a klutz


this is 
not
 the lamp post 
i walked into
and 
no
the tanker photo didnt happen

  2. Oh no, I've done that before. Ouch. Times like that I wish I had a macro lens and could pretend like I meant to get that close. Hope you're not bruised. Big hugs.

  3. Ouch on the lamppost. I've done the same, walking into a concrete pillar without paying attention. My arm got the worst of it.

  6. You need to be more careful! There are lots of undocumented water towers in New York and they can't take photos of themselves.

    I've posted about water towers two days in a row now. I'm a copycat and I am not ashamed of it.
