Water Towers and the Empire State Building, New York

They say a good picture is one which evokes emotion in the viewer – by that criteria, this must be one of the best pictures I’ve ever taken!  After an opportunistic weekend in New York, I sent this picture to friends and family back in Australia with the caption ‘view from my window’, and received a barrage of very emotional replies.  I’ve never had so many death threats and declarations of hatred in response to a picture before… 🙂

This picture was also the catalyst for my new obsession with New Work’s water towers – stay tuned for many more examples over the next few weeks.

  1. Hahaha, based on intensity of responses, I’d have to agree that it’s probably the best picture you’ve taken so far. For me, I like a bit of film noir… 🙂
