This is another water tower shot from a morning excursion with my friend Chris Robins. He inspired me to look for and shoot water towers that day — something I have continued doing since then, although the neighborhood we were in that morning really had more than I have ever seen since.
Well, Chris has published a couple of water tower shots from that morning, and my image today reminds me a bit of this one. The theme of old water tower set against a backdrop of a newer office or residential tower is kind of irresistible, once you notice it.
New York City still has a lot of water towers although many are being dismantled. Maybe, between Chris and me, we can shoot them all before they disappear.
