Elegant Downspout As I was shooting this, someone walked by and said, “Oh, that is nice.” And as downspouts go, I concur.

And you know, I’m so glad someone walking by said that to you, because hey, isn’t that what it’s all about? Making people notice the beauty in the everyday? You got to hear it directly, instead of via the web. That’s so cool. http://www.bambooska.com cbabs Was this back in New Orleans or SLC? http://blurbomat.com/wordpress blurb If you look at the “Tags” section, I usually tag a city location when it’s not SLC. Which I should probably start tagging as well. So, to answer your question, New Orleans. http://www.bambooska.com cbabs Oh, right. I’ll keep that in mind. Thought it was New Orleans because that pipe looks, y’know, Frenchy. lol http://www.flickr.com/photos/minxlj minxlj I love finding things like that! There are a lot of Victorian and older drainpipes (as we call them) here in Britain, and it makes a lovely change from the modern day UPVC plastic ones! If the older pipes aren’t ornate, the clips holding them to the wall usually are – it makes for some nice architectural interest that too many people pass on by. Nice shot – tempting me to want to visit New Orleans, btw!
