Brentwood Water Tower


I saw this water tower while waiting for my son's lacrosse game to start this past Tuesday. The light and contrast against the gray clouds got me! I'm always amazed when I hear about, or see in movies, people climbing up to check out the view, or have a few beers. Remember Sweet Home Alabama? 
I guess it was more popular years ago, but some of the few water towers still standing around here have graffiti on them. So people still climb up those very tall ladders.
My comment posting problem seems to be only happening with the Firefox browser. I guess when I upgraded to the latest and greatest...it wasn't. For the past few days I've been commenting and posting with the Google Chrome browser...except today. Chrome kept on freezing when I tried to up load the water tower photo. So, I'll post something new here on Firefox, quit, and comment on Chrome. See how easy computers have made our lives! Computers can drive you crazy. 

24) I am grateful for my sense of humor, another gift from God.

i like the combination of blues too.
lacrosse is a mystery to me, as i have never seen a game played. as for the water tower, i have never gone up the ladder, but, some kids in our small town did. usually seniors in highs school to write the year of their graduation. i still see this done on car windows.

I've never climbed a water tower, but the hometown one is covered with class years and names--kind of a rite of passage, I guess. The clouds in this sky are awesome. I love those colors.

I had the same problem with Firefox. I'm using an older Mac system (10.4.11) I tried to upgrade Firefox and now it doesn't work at all. I went back to Safari browser. No problem posting comments now and blogger windows and features look completely different.

Yes it's got nice shadows, matching the clouds. Don't forget you still have to post your impressionist panning try! I'm curious to see...
