The base of this old water tower stands defiantly in downtown Springfield. It is but a ghost of its former self. I do not know what purpose it served or who actually built it originally. Just like the thunderstorm behind it, its' time is limited. I encourage each of you no matter your passion in photography to capture the buildings around you. We are going through such a time of demolition and rebuilding that many times places like these will only survive in your files. Perhaps someday one of your files will be the inspiration for someone to answer those questions. What was this place and who was there? Get out an take pictures of old buildings before it is too late.
Take care and have a great Thursday.
