Attached are two pictures I found while in NYC one day. The first is one of a brand new conduit run that somebody didn't measure right. The second is of a camera installation in a lobby with the camera mounted to a tree, I guess they tried to "hide" it.

Picture #1 looks like the guys on floor "A" and "C" played tug-o-war, and the guy on floor "B" (this one) didn't tie the knot.

Took a minute to see the camera out on a limb in pic #2. It won't last long before it gets pruned.

You've got that right!, did they use a tape at all?.
Is it an optical illusion or is that a Ground Rod there, or just a length of pipe?.
That camera install is equally as rough. [Linked Image]

Trumpy, no ground rod there just somebody leaving scrap pipe laying around. I work in the security field and noticed the camera sitting in the lobby of a building with another tech, we both got a good laugh out of it. The cable for it just comes out of the mulch
