Nice Curves!


I took this top photo late one day at the Pepper Place while waiting for my photography students to arrive. I loved the way the afternoon light hit those curves! Later I learned that this tank collects rainwater from the roof of the shops there at the Pepper Place. I included the bottom shot so that you could see the whole contraption. My sources tell me the rainwater is collected and used for irrigation in the area. Sounds like a great idea to me.

Wonderful top photo - typical of how photography can change and beautify a rather bland environment. I thought this was a wooden piece a furniture - but the light, the light! Just brilliant !

You utterly transform this functional, rather unattractive vessel into a work of art.

Very clever .... a water tower with style

There's nothing like a good cistern shot!

Intriguing photo...I'd not have guessed what it was...my grandmother in northern Minnesota collected rain water for drinking and for washing...

It was nice and soft and usable after you skimmed all the bugs from the top!

I thought you had swiped an X-ray of the spine of one of my clients.
