Water down the drain

Saturday afternoon and suddenly I have this urgent feeling that I have to find out how to take photographs of running water to make them look just right. Not living near a stream I decided to take the spout and drain as my photo target. Needless to say that I did not find out how to shoot water properly, but I had a great time making the bubbles come to life in photoshop.

    This photo has seen many uses during its lifetime ( so far ). It's been used on plumbing sites, and to describe something going down the drain. Needless to say that during the financial crisis and following economic recession it saw a lot of uses in blogs, magazines and other online publications. I was always wondering why this photo of all my photos came up in the view statistics again and again. Funny to think that this is so popular.

    Well, here's one more publication: I've used it on my green blog for a post about keeping drains unclogged without dangerous chemicals.

    Hi There.
    Used your photo to illustrate a blog post about new drain and sewer adoption rules that could affect new extensions and conservatories, on our home improvement quotes blog.

    Here's a link to your photo in situ:

    Thanks for sharing - Jonathan.

    I heard that letting really hot water run through your drains could help keep them unclogged. I should really start doing more to keep my drains cleaned. That should help prevent leaks and clogs in my drains. I should have a plumber in to help me soon. Then my drains will be in mint condition.
