Quirky find of mine, at the east end of the Morrison Bridge

I took this photo on November 20, 2010. SPF 100, 768,000 FL OZ. I can't remember how long the water tower was painted like this, but I do remember hearing something about its decoration being illegal, according to city guidelines. I thought it matched the hideously large signs about flying to Hawaii. If I were to remove anything from this intersection, it would be those signs, not the decoration on the water tower. I altered the photo with the HDR-ish special effect at Picnik.

Quirky and colorful, and the billboard does catch one's eye, but, like you said, it needs to go! Tacky!

I love this photo. I think this particular area has good character due to the juxtaposition of objects. In a way, as horrible as the Hawaii sign is, it makes the location what it is.

Now that's fun!
