Re: The Photography Thread (photo-heavy content!)

So last week I was driving around and noticed a crew painting the water tower here in Ocala. I stopped and took a few pictures and talked to the ground crew. As we spoke, I noticed a small window near the top of the "stem" and asked what it was for. It was explained that there are two levels inside the tower, one at about fifty feet and another at about 150 feet. The window was at the higher level and there was a little room just inside it. I inquired about the possibility of getting up there to take a picture of the painting crews working near the window and—to my surprise—the supervisor said, "Sure. We can put a harness on you and you can go up there." Wow, cool! I came back two days later when the crews were in the same position and the sun was at a better angle for the photos I wanted.

Here's the tower:


You can see the little window just under the water tank:


Inside the base of the tower. This room is filled with equipment for the cell phone antennas on the roof. I had to climb the skinny ladder at the back of the room and it disappears through the floor at the 50-foot level:


Looking down from the 150-foot level. The floor below is the ceiling from the last photo:


Here's a room with a view. The ladder on the left goes up through the water tank to the roof. I didn't go up there.


Looking down to NE 8th Avenue:


This is the shot I wanted. I've already sold one framed print of this to a city employee who wants to give it as a gift to the manager of the city water department:

PD,
That photo is awesome! I doubt you'll have much trouble getting rid of a few of those pics. A curiosity! What did you use as a frame for the guys in the basket? Just the basket?

Thanks, but I'm afraid I don't understand your question. What do you mean by a frame? (I'm assuming you're not asking about the frame I mounted the print in.)

Well usually in a ground pic. one tries to frame the subject within some surrounding framework, not always but a lot of the time. In this aerial photo I'm not sure how one would have set themselves up for this; is all.

Oh, okay. No, I didn't do that here. I just wanted to get a pleasing composition with the painters and the background showing how high up they were while still getting part of the tank they were painting.

Awesome pic! The only problem I have with it is the horizon is just too darn flat.

Re: The Photography Thread (photo-heavy content!)

OK thanks, that gives me a better idea of what you were looking for. For sure the focal point seems to be the guy painting against an expansive background. Also I think the black and white gives it a sense of . . . timelessness I guess.
