    Drinking Tap

    This drinking tap was close to the Rotunda I posted today and I seen it and liked what I was looking at.
    These are a really good idea for around our area its gets really hot so this might have been put there for this reason.
    But it caught my eye and I had to take a photo of it.
    Yes I maybe a little weird but as they say it takes all kinds.

    I think the little bit on the bottom is for you to put water in there for your dog, I think its good thinking.

    Badhands,
    Nice shot. I too would have captured a shot of a drinking fountain with that design. Very clean/functional, almost sculptural design. Got me thinking that an album of drinking fountains might work well.

    thanks for sharing,
    Willie

    I too like this shot, and the design. It is quite sculptural and artistic. Is there a tap at the bottom for the pups' dish? If not, that would be a serious design flaw...

    Thanks for all the comments really appreciate them.
    The dog or pet section gets filled by the overflow from the top one.
    There is a pipe or drain to it from the top part.
    I thought this to be very clever and as said artist to the person looking at it.

    Thanks Pitter, I think it is a great idea also.
    The good side is that in summer it gets hot here and to find water for your dog is hard.
    So them actually thinking of this is well done.
