Some of the time when I am visiting a new city I look down as well as up.
It might be something to do with being a retired water and sewerage engineer but I always notice manhole covers.
Many municipal authorities are very proud of their services and like to put a bit of thought into their access covers; so here are some I photographed on a recent trip to Europe.
Cologne (Koln) Germany
And Looking Up!
This sculpture called ‘Peeping Tom’ can be found in Bratislava. . . .Fresh From the Sewer!
Although these covers are impressive for really great access covers Japan takes a lot of beating.
