Sometimes there is great interest in what we would normally consider boring – it is all about angles. This photograph makes sink hoses (something I am not normally excited to look at) quite interesting. There are different materials and widths, all stacked up not-quite-perfectly with the store’s fluorescent lighting shining off the fittings. The white tubing shows off its scale-like reinforcing, likening it to a snake’s belly.
Next time you’re at the hardware store, take a closer look around and perhaps you’ll find something intriguing in the details. Thank you to Erin Pettigrew for this photo, shared with creative commons.
