Sky Watch Friday




My first Sky Watch Friday...


They are in the process of painting a local water tower, so I caught these pics the other day while out running errands. Would you ever do this job? I don't think I would, no matter how much you paid me...

Very neat! Reminds me of the towers in SD where I grew up!

Melli..

Before starting the repainting project, the tower had a smiley face on it. My husband and I were wondering if they were going to paint it back on. I bet they will.

Toni said...

Oh my gosh, just the thought of that makes my feet tingle! Could you imagine sky watching from UP there?

Andrea said...

I hope they have a lot of life insurance.

The picture is beautiful. Please go back after they paint the water tower and get another picture. I am wondering if they are going to paint your hometown logo on it?

Nice photo. I wouldn't do that job for any amount of $$

I like the driftwood shot in the post below too.

Welcome to Sky Watch!!!

I love water towers and have several on my blog. It's fun to see the different things painted on them. I even caught a man climbing on one but didn't notice until I downloaded the picture.
No way would I have a job climbing on those things!

Welcome to SWF! Great picture of the tall water tower. Looks like it could reach the sky!

Those are great shots. I can't imagine being the one having to climb that ladder tho!

Very cool photos but you would not catch me up there!

Rick said...

No I wouldn't - probably would rather let a little snapping turtle have a try at my finger.

I've enjoyed looking at your photography. Thanks for sharing.
