My last pool photo is now beneath the fold (or the scroll), so here’s a different shot. Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Well done ! Most people vacuum the pool while there is water in it. Then again, the camera shot would have been a bit trickier.

    • Thank you very much, sir! Hahaha… I was getting a bit nervous hanging around there with my camera (because it’s a shared pool at our apartment complex which had been drained for repairs). I kept expecting someone to come out and start asking me what I was up to!

  2. Even empty, that pool looks cool and inviting. I’d like to lay across the bottom of the empty cool pool and stargaze/take a nap.

    I’d sweep a clean spot first though.

  3. I wonder why an empty pool is so creepy. It doesn’t seem like it should be… yet somehow it is. Hmm. Interesting. I like it, creepiness and all!

  4. My issues with pools is one of the weirdest things about me, I think. I loooooove them. But I need them to be absolutely perfect. No chipped paint. No leaves. No bugs. And CERTAINLY no broken filters. These pictures are giving me nightmares!

    • Oh no! *dun dun dun*!
      When I took this the pool had been drained because of a filter problem. They fixed that, but then a few days later it was closed again after being ‘vandalized’. I would have liked to have taken my camera back over there, but I figured after the second ‘incident’ my lurking around might look even more suspicious than usual.

  5. Something very eerie about an empty built in pool with dried leaves it it. This shot would look great in a psychological thriller. And I’m still not sure why. It’s a great shot!

    • I don’t know if I’m ready to think about winter yet, Juana… maybe I should have waited a few more weeks to post this one!
      Thank you so much – that is incredibly kind of you!

    • I have to admit I was pretty happy I had my camera when I came across this pool! Thank you so much for stopping by, T.U… and for your very kind comment as well! I really appreciate it!
