Linda Grashoff's Photography Adventures

My Favorite Drainpipe in Wisconsin

October 4, 2018

My camera has visited this drainpipe and environs for three years running. They haven’t changed much from last year (see the fifth photograph down) except for the displacement of a few bricks and the loss of more white paint. And except for the subsequently missing graffiti sticker (see the sixth and seventh photos down), they didn’t look much different in 2016 either. Well, there’s always next year.

  1. Oh Yes! I remember that drainpipe. What I hadn’t realised was how crumpled the drain pipe is in its lower reaches. You’ve not been kicking it have you? Only joking – but it’s looks like it’s been ‘in the wars’ and benefited from the damage (photographical that is). And that patch of white painted bricks is still there I see.

    • Isn’t it interesting how much character the crumpling adds! How nice for me that you remember this drainpipe, Andy.

  2. Excellent photos of an excellent drainpipe. It’s good looking and functional (from the standpoint of water)! Well done, Linda.

    • Thanks, Ken. I guess we share our love for what other people may think of as mundane. (Thinking of your cosmic cookie sheets.)

  3. Rendered with such care and attention to every detail, never weighting one over the other. It’s like a subtle lesson in caring for the world.

    • Thank you, Donna. I’m happy that you are on to my humor. I’m sure I’ve just confounded some other people.

  5. Yes, I agree about having a favourite drainpipe – there should be more people like you in the world, Linda! And I like these pictures, in terms of content, composition and processing. As we Brits (or at least this Brit) say: great stuff!!! A 🙂

    • Ah, Adrian, thanks. I’m glad you like these. Maybe some day you’ll show us your favorite drainpipe.

      • Hahaha! well I haven’t got a favourite drainpipe as of now but, due to you, I shall never look at drainpipes in the same way again – which, to me, is a very valuable thing – for which I thank you. Widening horizons is always for the good. A 🙂

    • Thank you, John. It’s amazing how much interest there can be in such a relatively small and common space.
