The joys of indoor plumbing

Water, water everywhere...

I dig faucets (see here and here for earlier examples), so it should come as no surprise that I got up close and personal with this one, too. I found this one, conveniently enough, in my hotel room. It was a pretty lovely hotel, too, so in the tiny snippets of free time that we had in between conference events, I'd wander the halls looking for things to shoot.

It's funny how you can find memorable beauty literally under your nose. But only if you pause long enough to discover it. Otherwise, stuff like this slips by with barely a murmur.

Your turn: How do you remember the ordinary? Why is the ordinary worth remembering in the first place?

I work for a company that sells faucets, so we see lots of faucet porn :-) Your image ranks right up there with the best.

Because, ordinarily, I don't remember it.
