A word about my banner

The drainspout featured in my brand-spanking-new banner is one Husband and I photographed this very day on the campus of Northwestern University, here in our hometown of Evanston, Illinois. It hangs above an entrance to Chauncey Keep at what was until recently the campus of the Seabury-Western Theological Seminary. It is now a part of Northwestern and serves as additional student housing. Seabury still exists (thank God), but in a much-reduced form. It leases some of its former space from its new landlord...until its future plans are more concrete. Fortunately, the exteriors cannot be touched; they're registered landmarks, both federally and locally. This is very good news for this beautifully-patinaed copper scupper!
