thar she blows!

water line spouts
I am unable to relate exactly what is up here. Intersection of Market and Meade. Visual confirmation of the much more than adequate water pressure in this section of Charlottesville.
Last time I measured water pressure with a gauge the static pressure reading was 125 pounds per square inch. Sooo. How high could she spout? One psi will raise a one square inch column of water 2.304 feet, so 288 feet?

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
