It's indeed very creative. Looks like a maze. Happy new year!

Julie said...

Obviously a frustrated installation artist, VP. Should we tell him that water only understands "down" in one direction? The background lemon is delightful as is the copper/brown of the pipes.

I wish you health and happiness as we journey into 2010, my friend. Happy boating!

Cool picture and post. I saw it on my side bar and couldn't wait to click on it. It does look more like art than plumbing! Strange and beautiful.

Hilda said...

Looks almost like a piece of sculpture!

Happy New Year! Again. :)

Paula said...

What a fabulous find! Sculpture indeed! Have a great New Year's Eve and sail into the new year with joy, V! Much love, P

Happy New Year my friend, may today bring you some sun to dry up all the rain. Best wishes and good fortune for 2010.
Cheers.

That is very creative both the gutter and your use of it.

David Bowie always comes to mind when I hear or see "changes"

Happy New Year!

It is very creative. The wall color is quite eye catching too.

Dina said...

Ha, very artistic!
The material looks like it will last for quite a while too.

Hello, Vogon / Trillian: Just a quick note to wish you folks the very best for 2010 - have a great year!

Jilly said...

Oh what fun, creative and rather beautiful too. I wish you the best of New Year's Vogon Poet - to you and your family.

And a nice, substantial piece of the pipeworker's art it is too. No leaks on that building. I like it. I like pipes. I used to work in a Victorian hospital and one day they took off some plaster and the pipes underneath were all decorated with rosettes and twirly bits even though they were never meant to be seen :)

Happy New Year VP and Trillian.

Another example of your fine ability to take something so mundane and turn it into a work of ART! It's going to be a great year! And many fabulous pixels!

Very artsy way to direct the rain water. Perfect on the yellow background!

Che costruzione complicata!
Ti auguro BUON ANNO! Senza complicazioni ;-)

It looks like a sculpture! Are you sure you were not in the museum?

A change in direction may be needed this year in more than plumbing! Happy New Year to you.
