On our way for a quick birding trip at Basapura Lake, we were crossing Bommanahalli when our attention was caught by a car-pillar.

My friend Vidhya Sundar says there are many creations here, made from waste. She sent me this photograph of the plaque which gives the names of the cars in the pillar:

On our way back home, we saw the pillar illuminated:

The park apparently has a lot of art creations made from waste. It was an interesting find!
