Terrell Water Tower


Today's photo is one of several water towers around town. This one is located down near Ben Gill park. I'm still trying to read through the owner's manual for my new camera.... I'm pretty impressed with it so far...

I love seeing the different shapes and sizes of water towers. Yours is pretty classic. :)

We don't store water like this in Australia. I've always found these sort of odd. What is the thinking behind having them up in the air like that?

I assume that it's a gravity thing, but we just build our reservoirs on the top of hills. Maybe it is too flat?

Interesting shot nonetheless!

Gravity is the reason. The water falling down through smaller and smaller pipes will give you high pressure at the end at the faucet or hose.

Almost everyone has watertowers here in this country and can even be found in New York City.

This is very nice photography.

First, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! We March people are very special.

Second, have fun with the camera!

I do like the shot of the water tower. Are all of them in Terrell the same shape?

(Aside: This election stuff is driving me crazy!! You?)

Finally, if you get a chance to check out my blog Sat., I have a great story to share.

Great subject for photos! We don't have water towers that are above the ground. Ours are all built at ground level.
