ARTISTIC DOWNPIPE

 

During the later part of last year Chad had a series devoted to gutteridge of one sort or another.  I came across this on a colour slide that I took on a railway station somewhere in Scotland in the early 1970's.

 

I thought it was rather an attractive downpipe and decided to convert it to monochrome in order to present it.

Now this is a nice and very artistic downpipe Brian. A nice B/W.
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought so too Frances.
I like it - very ornate for a downpipe! I'm glad you took a moment to snap this one!
Brian Walbey: Yes I like it too Elizabeth, I just can't remember where I took it after all these years except it is in Scotland.

Chad will have an o****m when he sees this!
Brian Walbey: He offered me congratulations with this ground-breaking photo for this particular genre Chris, I am very proud smile
Fancy floral gutteridge indeed.

Then you are the originator in gutteridge photography Brian. A fine example of fixage.
Brian Walbey: I feel humbled that you should congratulate me for this photo in such an overwhelming fashion Chad, thanks very much.

This one is very ornate with its fixings holding it on smile
Brian Walbey: Yes it is, it is actually painted in a purpley sort of colour.

Oh yes, Chad might be pleased to look at this downpipe, presumedly from Victorian times.
Brian Walbey: Chad is indeed very impressed Philine, and it comes from a Scottish railway station that would have been built in Victorian times.

Please DON'T make a series of these, Brian wink The supports are very attractive.
Brian Walbey: My one and only Alan. I can't remember which Scottish station this was on, except it was a rural rather than city or town station.

Not sure about encouraging Chad is his endeavours smile But certainly very decorative and smart.
Brian Walbey: Yes this should be my first and last on gutteridge John.
I think Chad would consider such decoration rather decadent, Brian!
Brian Walbey: He praised me for being the originator of gutteridge photographs Tom, an honour I couldn't refuse smile
Mr Duffton will be green with envy Brian
Brian Walbey: He praised me for being the originator of gutteridge photographs Bill, an honour I couldn't refuse smile
If they made the gutteridge this decorative, Brian, it makes me curious as to what the rest of the railway station looked like.
Brian Walbey: I wish I could remember where this was taken Beverly but it was in the early 70's.as far as I can recall.
Excellent depiction of architectural detailing. I do really like this one Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Neil.
And now today we have utility plastic black /grey stuff ... The developing and improving aesthetic world of ours.
Brian Walbey: Yes at least this had some character to it Richard.
A beautiful capture of this "Noble" pipe Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes quite artistic isn't it Richard.
i don't think i have seen anything quite like this. am glad you have preserved your slides from the days
Brian Walbey: Yes it is quite artistic isn't it. I have upwards of 3,000 - 4,000 slides and almost as many B.& W.negatives Ayush, I don't think I will run out of images for a while.
