I love NYC and you captured the tone very well.

It is a fabulous thing, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE the water towers of NYC, Ray. I started "collecting" them many years ago. smile
I love how you've composed this - and the grey sky really adds to the mood!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth. You can see why all of this caught my eye!

Memories run deep, Ginnie - you can't resist going back for another peek
Ginnie Hart: So very true, Lisl!!! smile

Very handy to point out 'where I live, first right and I live below the red/white striped watertower'....
A grand view and I know we will be back for another peek smile
Wonderful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Can you imagine knowing the whole wide world is watching you there! But definitely, you wouldn't have a hard time explaining exactly where you live. HA! Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA.

Windmills to water towers eh Ginnie. I wonder why they needed to decorate this in such a way?
Ginnie Hart: I collect them both, Chad, so the more the merrier. smile My guess is someone wanted to be unique?!

There's a whole alternative world up there Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I'm very sure you're right, Chris!

At least there are some trees - but your heart might jump regarding the water towers!
Ginnie Hart: Trees, yes, Philine, but the water towers DO make my heart jump. You know me well! smile
If you lived in a windmill with a water tower with a weather vane on it and a crane in the garden, you would be in heaven Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You realy really really know me well, Bill! I declare!
Which one?
The cistern?
That's NC icon?
Don't bluff me, ok?
I'm really gullible.
Ginnie Hart: You are so gullible, LC. I know you! What a Joker. smile
That's so iconic of New York, Ginnie. The penthouse apartment has quite a roof garden.
Ginnie Hart: Think of the thousands of people that see that every year, Pauline! What a fish bowl!

Terrific image Ginnie ..I really must get to New York
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. Make sure that if you go you spend a lot of time there. There's so much to see!!!!
I knew nothing of these water towers, prior to Astrid and your posts, but I've an inkling that if I visited NY, I'd want them on film too! Great treatment Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. There are thousands of water towers in NYC, so you would be on Cloud Nine, as I was. smile

A great composition with what looks like a water reservoir in airport stripes as the highlight.
Ginnie Hart: BINGO, Louis. NYC has thousands of water towers but not all of them are candy-striped like this one! smile
Nice....

I like this
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Preyi. Glad you like it. smile

Even before I saw the title, I thought "New York". that sort of water tank was the first think i saw from my hotel the first time I went to New York. I like the roof garden.
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE the water towers of NYC, Alan. They're everywhere, to my great delight!!! This is one of the best because it's painted. smile
always an icon Ginnie! thanks for sharing
Ginnie Hart: I hope they never change, Ronky! Thnaks.
Outstanding image of this NYC icon. Wouldn't you love to have the job of photographing and documenting the decorated water towers of NYC, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly, and oh, yes. I would eat up that assignment!!! smile
Only in America!
Ginnie Hart: Well, I guess, Tom??!! smile
I hadn't realised that NYC has these very artistic water towers on the top of the buildings, this one is great, I can see now why you collect them.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Brian. There are over 10,000 wooden water towers alone in NYC. It would really be a feat to collect them all, wouldn't it! smile But some, like this one, are more special and stick out like a sore thumb!
What a great place to get away from it all Ginnie. It is an eye catcher isn't it.
Ginnie Hart: Definitely, Janet. Who can resist them?!

Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, JP. Me4rci.
If i had to live in a city I would like a balcony like those!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Yes, of course, Sarah. smile
Quite iconic indeed Ginnie! Well spotted end captured.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard. It does NYC proud! smile

Bonsoir Ginnie. Superb photo with a nice texture. Great work Ginnie. Have a lovely evening. Amicalement Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: Kindest regards, Antoine. But how do I find your latest image?????
How very very strange but how interesting as a result. I have never seen the likes of this.
Ginnie Hart: There are thousands of water towers on the rooftops of NYC, Martin, but only a few of them are colored like this. It does make them stand out! Thank you.

NY the city of happiness
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Oscar. Indeed.
If you have collected that many NYC water towers Ginnie... where do you keep them?... good shot from the bridge....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Those file folders really come in handy, Peter, don't they. grin Thanks.
I want a roof top garden on my house. We have a flat roof so we are ready for it.
Ginnie Hart: Just as long as your roof supports it, Michael, go for it! smile

What a great picture of an amazing building. Those water towers are something else (I followed your link from your In Soul blog about them and found it fascinating)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne...and so I see you're a lurker now at In Soul. HA! Have you been doing anything at your blog lately???

Love the mood of this. Spectacular!
Ginnie Hart: How sweet of you, Mad. I need to find the link to your blog.....hmmm....
What a view from there.
Ginnie Hart: That Brooklyn Bridge is worth the whole experience, Michael.
you can see a lot of cool things from that bridge!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Dennis. Definitely! smile
Fabulous!
Ginnie Hart: And in your own backyard, Robin! Thank you.
