POTD - Green and Rust

POTD - Green and Rust

Have you ever seen these giant round containers in and around cities?  I have and yet I don't have a clue what they are used for?  Are they treating waste water?  Is this fresh water?  Does it NOT hold water at all?  Well, in Jamaica there were several of these all next to the dock where our ship pulled in.  I really liked the patina of container and the rust and white of the stairway.  The funniest thing though, was that I took this picture because I thought the palm tree was a mural on the side of the container.  It wasn't until we walked back by it a few hours later that I realized it was a real palm tree. 

Leave me a comment if you know what these containers are for because it's driving me crazy.

the containers hold either oil or gas for your cruise ship! most large harbors have these. in boston they are by the airport!
