Ottoman down pipe

By Michaelr205
This was taken on the Cretan Island of Spinalonga. It is a drainage channel, the equivalent of a downpipe, on a Turkish Ottoman building which later became part of a Leper Colony. The colony wasn't closed until 1957 when the last inmate was allowed to leave.

This caught my eye as I like taking pictures of small details of larger things which either encapsulate the whole or, sometimes, disguise.

I think I would maybe crop the top to remove the sky. But an interesting picture and good description of what it is.
