I was walking east on West 23rd Street in New York City and noticed this row of pipes extending out from the wall of a drug store. The fact that the biggest one is in front with a bunch of little ones behind it, leaned back like they’re recoiling from the site of something scary, made me think of them as a little people, like little cartoon characters scared of something. If you’re not seeing it the way I am, here’s the closest thing I could find, several characters from the Donald Duck series who are hiding behind the biggest duck. Now do you see what I mean?
It’s funny, because you really have to get down low and see it exactly from this angle (above) in order to get the idea … if you look at it from a standing height and angle, as you can see below, it looks totally different. I’m not sure how or why I always seem to notice things like this, but it adds a level of fun to walking around NYC and trying to see things that others might not see.
