      Thanks, E. I toyed with the idea of trying to buy several of these and use them as stepping stones in my back yard but they’re not available on Amazon.

      I’m pretty sure there’s a never-ending supply where you photographed these.

      Just pick them up, take them home, and the next day they will magically be replaced by new ones.

    Wonderful series. Almost wish you had doled them out one by one, to make the experience last. But seeing them all at once was fun. You have strengthened my resolve to keep looking down. . . . I agree: these would make terrific stepping stones.

      Thanks, Linda. I struggled with the idea of posting these one at a time as I think they have more impact when viewed individually and a viewer would spend more time looking at them per photo. But posting one at a time may, to some viewers, seem repetitious and lose interest. But repetition is the point of a series of a particular subject. You can see my dilemma. So here is my compromise: I post all of the covers that I currently have at one time but promise to continue to shoot more (and post more) in the future until I tire of the series or I run out of covers to shoot (whichever comes first).

        Yes but on your blog one can come for the photos and stay for the writing. I lack any talent for writing although I have an idea for a StarTrek story.

        Writing is more a matter of practice than talent. Also, if you read a lot you ‘absorb’ some of the writer’s talent. That’s why older writers decline in quantity and quality; their readers read them dry.

        Makes sense except for the absorption part. I listened to a lot of music yet I’m a terrible musician. I don’t have the discipline to be good in music or writing.

      Thanks, Howard. These things are everywhere, too. Some are located on a street with heavy traffic which makes them difficult to compose and shoot. Don’t try this at home kids. We’re highly trained professionals and we know what we’re doing (most of the time).

        Excellent warning…..manhole covers should definitely be left to the pros! Reminds me of when I was a kid back in the day when kids actually played in the streets. Manhole covers were very important. They were usually second base. And that tree over there is first and that red car is third!

      Thanks, Tom. I confess I never paid attention to them but when I took a closer look I can see the care and the design that went into making them while still being functional.

      Thanks, ehpem. I wasn’t intentionally looking for Canadian storm drains but I couldn’t pass them by once I spotted them.Who knows, I might be seeking asylum in Canada during the next 4 years.

        Well, you can get in line for our spare room if you like. Melinda managed to get at the front of that line, and a cousin or two as well, one of them complete with donkey.

        Well, not that I am aware of. It lives on the Upper Peninsula and the wifi connection is terrible, via satellite I think. It doesn’t play guitar either. Or hang out in museums.

        But, it does produce pretty good fertilizer for the garden, and might actually fit in the woodshed.

      Thanks, Andy. I went with the conversion to maintain consistency in tone over all the files. These were shot, in some cases, weeks apart and some with the Nikon and some with the phone. So far, I’m delighted with the quality from the phone.
