sewer

Assorted debris from New Orleans' gutters, collected in the aftermath of Mardi Gras night. I brought it home to be part of a window installation in my gallery exhibit, and borrowed the sewer grate from an antique store. I want to buy one like it- so If anyone knows where I can find another one like this, please email me! The photo is a studio shot, from a 4 by 5 negative.
