Well, yes. Yes, I am. Let me explain.
When I am out and about, I often will happen across something that makes me wonder “how did that happen”? It could be shadows on a wall, leaching minerals, or paint that drips. In this case, it is a combination of the paint and the rust. While out at a local hardware store in Berkeley, my attention was drawn to a large water tower that seems to have had better days. Water towers in small towns are quite common. They are not all that common in the middle of the urban landscape. How did it get here? What is its history? How did the city grow up around it?
