C for Camouflage



I hadn't shown a decorated water tower since late December, and I almost missed this one as it disappeared in the sky.

The painter had used a concealment stratagem to hide the water tower. Apparently camouflage can be used also in pacific means.

It needed an expert eye to discover the concrete tower in the middle of the clouds.

If ever you find the little village of Houquetot you can start looking for the clouds and maybe find some water. Let's hope that it will not pour down on you.

Very nice C post

C Comme Camouflage. Pas tellement étonnant que je n'avais pas encore trouvé ce château d'eau qui pourtant est situé assez près. On l'avait caché dans le ciel nuageux.

This photo is a rarity for the members of The Cloud Appreciation Society one of whom I´d love to be.
What an ingenuous piece of art and choice of yours for C. :)

An admirable C - the most original I have seen yet. Not to mention the water tower.

Olivier a dit…

Ida a dit…

Great Choise for the C!:)

Très bien tourné ton texte ! Avec les nuages en Normandie on doit avoir des bonnes chances de le trouver, encore qu’il doit se trouver sur une toute petite route – charmante of course !

Et toi, parfois l'on te voit, lorsque le ciel est nuageux mais pas ce matin où il est très léger avec de jolis clouds.
Le meilleur camouflage des immeubles c'est celui qui reflète l'environnement. Tu as des immeubles avec des panneaux bleux qui tranchent sur le gris. Les gris tranchent sur le bleu

Il faut se fondre, HPY ma biche, et pas trancher

La biche brame au clair de lune
Et pleure à se fondre les yeux :
Son petit faon délicieux
A disparu dans la nuit brune.

Pour raconter son infortune
A la forêt de ses aïeux,
La biche brame au clair de lune
Et pleure à se fondre les yeux.

Mais aucune réponse, aucune,
A ses longs appels anxieux !
Et, le cou tendu vers les cieux,
Folle d'amour et de rancune,
La biche brame au clair de lune.

Camouflage?

Is it possible to hide a tower like that?

Camouflage?

I have seen better jobs of camouflage. This one sticks out like a bandage on a cut thumb. LOL

Ackworth Born a dit…

marvellous!!

Liz a dit…

You would have thought he would have done the same thing on the tower itself too. Was it effective I wonder?

Great shot of the tower!

Paulie a dit…

Interesting tower to go with this theme -- neat camouflage in the sky!

Kutuharju a dit…

This one looks a bit like a huge suction cup -- it's going to suck all that greyness off from the sky so that the Sun can keep an eye on the Earth again ;)

Dragonstar a dit…

A very different shot for C. I wonder how long it took to paint those clouds. Glad I didn't have to do it!

Miss_Yves a dit…

Evidemment, si un château d'eau se camoufle dans le ciel nuageux de haute Normandie,il est logique qu'il réapparaisse dans le ciel nuageux de Basse -Normandie ,(par chez nous, comme on dit) !

claude a dit…

C't'aprèmen ville, j'ai vu un chateau-d'eau sans déco mais j'ai quand même pensé à toi.
C comme coeur et chaleur.

KOSTAS a dit…

I thank for the visit in my blog. Very beautiful the subject of photograph, also and the corner of reception!

Neva a dit…

too funny! nice "C".

Katney a dit…

It is intersting, but does the cammoflage of that sort really make it difficult to see as you look up? I would think it would be kindof like trying to hide an elephant.

Andrea a dit…

Great "C" post. Love the picture.

VP a dit…

What a great C in all those Clouds!

Bergson a dit…

Janet a dit…

How interesting! I've never seen a camouflaged tower before.

Lara a dit…
