WATER TOWER - NORTHERN FRANCE

Water Tower - Northern France
During my recent cycle ride from Gibraltar to the UK I saw lots of these water towers in Northern France. I have a real liking for them.....the various shapes and sizes make them interesting photographic subjects. I saw this particular one about twenty miles south of Chateaubriant and I was really attracted to it's smooth lines and great slender shape.

Hi Trevor, have you seen the typologies of Bernd and Hilla Becher?

Thanks Adrian....Glad that you 'joined us' on the trip.

Yes Colin- I have seen their work, although I do prefer to view their images as individual shots rather than in groups.
I must say that industrial images are something that have always been of interest to me.
