Receding Water Tower

Water Tower in Recession

Technically it’s a shot looking upwards but I rotated it 90 degrees CCW.

    Cheers, both of you! Yeah, I did notice some color but hadn’t decided which one. I’d thought my phone did B&W but apparently that was an older model. The Galaxy S5 has a sweet camera but the software took some steps backward.

    • Does your android have much in the way of photo editing apps? The iPhones have a ton. I have at least one that is all about converting to B&W with sliders to fiddle the grey scale of each color range in the original. Mostly I post process in Pixelmator on my Mac though.

    Nice! I like how the water adds texture.

  • There is remarkably little color in that shot. Sometimes a color shot looks B&W but there’s always a little color. I think maybe this has a hint of yellow, but it’s very faint. Oh, and the abstractness, the angles and lines. All really nice. :)
