the manhole cover


I found this cover next to the levee.  It doesn't appear that this cover is opened very often.  In any case, it adds to my collection of covers that I find interesting.

    1. Yes, I agree. Maybe I should have titled this "Postcards from the Edge" (to steal a title!).

  2. The footprint of an Alien. I love the colour shadows from dark to light grey. As it seems you live on a treasure island .

    1. Yeah, I've seen several collections of 'em. I'm wondering how much a manhole cover designer makes.
