New York water towers 15

n.y water towers 15

So this is the 15th in the series. It is also one of my favorites yet as it incorporates everything that I love about the city, and the water towers that stand out againt the sky. There is grit, high contrast, shadows, subtle color, lots of windows with air conditioners hanging out of them, and sex. (I love some of these things more than others . . .)
These were found near Lafayette and Jersey street in lower Manhattan.

The print is available here.

Wow... sounds and looks like all the ingredients of a pulp fiction novel. Great Capture!

Heat, sweat, grit, sex ... everything I associate with New York City in one photo. :)

I keep thinking you'll never be able to top your latest watertower photo and then you do...this one is so fabulous.
