Water Towers Around the World

See more Check out pictures tagged #watertower and #watertank.

From Saudi Arabia to Texas to Sweden, you’ll find iconic water towers of different shapes and sizes. By definition, a water tower is a structure supporting a watertank and is elevated to a height sufficient to pressurize a water supply system. With more elevation comes greater pressure, which helps ensure the water can flow far and wide and avoid toxic contaminants from groundwater.

Designers choose all sorts of decorations for the external shell of these towers. Some print their town’s name or icon/mascot on the outside, others sport advertisements, and some are pristine examples of aesthetic trends.

Colorado’s Largest Hot Air Balloon Festival

Labor Day weekend marked the 36th annual Colorado Balloon Classic in Colorado Springs. There were 80 pilots registered to bring 80 aircraft, which included hot air balloons, a helicopter, and paragliders. The Colorado Balloon Classic continues to hold the title of the largest air show and the largest hot air balloon event in Colorado.

Hundreds of beautiful images of the mass ascensions of dozens of balloons were shared to Instagram through the tag #coloradoballoonclassic and the official event location page.

Call Parade

Spotted on the streets of metropolitan São Paulo are 100 peculiar phone booths that were given to 100 artists for free-reign artistic transformations! This public exhibition, known as Call Parade, was started to “promote artistic connectivity between the artistic manifestations, its makers and the public” according to it’s sponsor, Vevo — a Brazilian telecommunications firm.

With over 1,900 photographs on Instagram tagged with #callparade of these strange, whimsical, and beautiful hood fixtures, we think it’s safe to say the exhibit has been a success!

Loggerhead Hatchlings Reach the Sea

Last week, the Loggerhead turtle nesting season along the coast of the southeastern United States came to a close. Thousands of hatchlings made their way to the sea with help from US Interior (@usinterior) staff and volunteers who donated thousands of hours to help save the turtles. During migration from nest to sea, the hatchlings face attacks from raccoons, crabs, toads, lizards, snakes and seabirds. Once in the ocean, more predators wait for them, including parrotfish, moray eels and portunid crabs.

Mortality rates of nearly 100% of all clutches laid in a season have been recorded on some Florida beaches. Efforts to protect nests by covering them with wire mesh has significantly reduced the impact of predation on loggerhead eggs.

Rad Cars with Rad Surfboards on Them

Want to see more of Kevin’s illustrations? Follow @kbut and check out the tag #radcarswithradsurfboardsonthem to see all photos from the project.

Kevin Butler (@kbut) draws rad cars with rad surfboards on them and shares his illustrations on Instagram with the tag #radcarswithradsurfboardsonthem.

“I grew up near the beach, with a dad that rebuilt old hot rods,” Kevin tells us. “Because of this, cars and surfboards are the two things I love most. And think about it, a car with a surfboard on it is a beautiful thing. Whether it’s going for a surf or coming back from one. It’s an expression of total happiness and complete contentment.”

Last month, Kevin had an art opening where patrons walked away with original illustrations, sometimes depicting their own cars and surfboards. Want a print of your own? You can visit his website to order Kevin’s book or prints.
