The Rear Wiper

The rear window reflects a bit of the evening sky at 6 p.m. last night as we went to an exhibition opening at Lopdell House. But mainly it serves as background to this ingenious use of a feather. We have seen plenty of coat hanger aerials, but this is the first feather wiper that I have come across.

  1. It is definitely a novel idea, but does it work?

  2. This shot made me chuckle. Very creative use of a feather and as a photo for Skywatch!

  4. A feather wiper! Hilarious!


    A man who looked up at the sky
    Saw ravens and clouds flying by.
    He had to look up,
    The sky filled his cup—
    He’s my kind of sky-watching guy!

  6. (and the word verification is “vulture”) a feather is easily replaced. I love this!
