A Snail?


When I was rambling through the Utsunomiya downtown, one anonymous building caught my eyes. My first thought was that this metallic snail-looking thingy was a ladder. But I was wrong!

When I got closer to it, "organic" smell got stronger (Thank God that it was winter). This metal object adjacent to the building turned out to be a long and spiral slide to the trash bin! How intelligent, or let's say, lazy the designer of this building was!


This is a Outdoor Wednesday #160 and Sky Watch Friday entry.

  7. Very creative angle for your photo! I wonder how many people watch their trash slide down all the way to the bottom. I think it would be more fun for people at the top floor than the first floor.

  10. That's quite unique! Although I'm rather pleased it's not a common place structure.
