In The Window


This house is a wonderful sky blue color. But there is one thing that always makes me stop and ponder.

What IS that brown thing on the windowsill?

Yes what is that strange brown thing

At first I thought he must have been the architect of the Golden Turd in Asakusa, but when I actually looked at “brownie” I saw that it is a piece of bamboo (the root section on the right, nodes visible to the left). People sometimes use bamboo as a kind of vase or container for ikebana, thus the hole in the center.

Môsô bamboo can be quite large. Just ask these kids.

A very nice house of an unusual color. Thanks to Tall Gary for solving the mystery.

as usual, great combination.
I like the formal composition of the first shot and the disorienting perspective in the other shot.

Molto brava :)

Thank you Tall Gary, you've solved the case! Now that you mention it, it does look like bamboo :)

And thanks to everyone else for the comments!
