Have the pipe run down the wall on the inside, say in a cavity...Where it is, it is an eyesore, a last minute addition to the plans, meaning a cockup by the architect

And when it fails ... but no-one notices--or pins down the problem--for a while ...enjoy the dry rot and the cost of its eradication.

Nevertheless ... that is one truly nasty pipe run. And painted white.

Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.

When I designed porticos and porches, budgets always necessitated a dumbed-down version of the original design. The hidden, built-in downspouts would have to be eliminated in favor of the exterior ones, because it is simply too costly to enclose them.

You assume much that isn't true. Architects and designers don't get to design things the way they want to - their primary concern, above all else - is to design the structure so that it can be constructed within the client's budget. In other words, they pretty much get told how to design things by their clients, and if they stray from these parameters they make people angry and lose their jobs.

So, the architects have not "cocked up", as you say. They no doubt wanted to enclose the downspouts, but were dictated to do otherwise because of financial parameters. You perhaps do not realize the extreme expense of running a downspout within a wall cavity, and doing so in such a way as to ensure that all building codes are still being adhered to.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

No but they could at least find a flat bit of wall, and use a brown PVC pipe instead of that white monstrosity.

So ...... now we are discussing ugly downspouts? LOL That's funny ..... but it is UGLY !!!

I've been using the D3000 off and on for a week or so and have not had the problem occur again ..... yet.

The only other time it ever did this was over a year ago after it had not been used for quite a period of time. This time is sort of the same thing. It has not been used for several months. I'm wondering if, after a period of non-use that the shutter gets "sticky" and after a bit of use returns to normal operation?

Just thinking.


Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

I agree. There's nothing wrong with it. Its part of the architecture. Some people are just soooo extra in trying to create photographic perfection. I've never seen a church like that without least a down spout on every corner.
