Surprise intersection

Is it a castle from where Rapunzel lowers her hair?

Is it a fortification?No it is a water tower!This tower is at an intersection near me and it lifts my heart when I see it.

We have such a responsibility to make the ordinary less ordinary...and even beautiful.

This is the next stage, an aerial landscape with crop circles?It has been mentioned my interest in Cityscapes. This is a cover of a folder I did a little while ago. I was looking for something for my friend Jeanette.(the quilter) .

It caused me to look at some past work and it felt really good.

Clever and lovely, an unusual combination in a post.

So true about the water tower. It reminds me of an old clip on Sesame Street of a sunflower or daisy, filed in close-up, focusing on different parts of it, and very gradually pulling back until you see that it's growing in a pot on a windowsill in the middle of New York. All to the soundtrack of Vivaldi's Guitar (Lute) concerto in (D?) slow movement. I'll have to see if I can find a clip of it....
