I love water towers. I am not particularly fond of decking them out with cell phone equipment, but I guess that's better than tearing them down. This water tower is in my hometown of Cranston, RI and (conveniently) can be seen from I-95. I'm sure at one time it provided water pressure for the factory where it is located. Now it provides stronger signals for drivers who should be paying attention to the road.

Created using my 1950's AGFA Clack with seven year expired Fuji T64 slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation necessary!

    There is a water tower across the street from my workplace that has cell phone antennae attached to it as well. (In fact, it's also been in a few of my photos) Though mine is well hidden from any major roads... my reception at work is fabulous. ;)
    I like this photo a lot. The colours are great.

    Yes, watertowers might be a lovely this one!
    ...and I quite like your angel here, with the buildings in the background showing the environment, and the line in upper right corner is a very good line for the composition and balance.
    (Thanks, also, for your storytelling)
    ...and the use of colours and tones brings this photo...beyond words!
