Here's a close-up of something you see everywhere
in NYC—do you know what it is?

  1. Long Island Railroad Power would be my guess.

    Looks like you caught it in a dormant phase, as this is not.

  2. With that gorgeous (and yes! nicely textured) antique patina it just may find its way into a museum collection someday. You know, “A genuine forged specimen that was not built up by a 3-D printer.”

  3. I'm assuming TG is utterly correct, as usual, and I congratulate you on spotting a particularly lovely specimen, Alexa. Hope you're having a beautiful weekend!

  4. Yep, Shell—TG got it in 1 (but I love the linkage in 2 and 3!). I took this shot the same day I took this one.

  5. My guess would be a 'manhole' cover...for sewer drainage?

  6. Love the expression of "forged specimen" and you have captured it beautifully! The texture and colors make it worthy of framing.

  7. Would never have realized that was a manhole cover. I like its color as well as texture! :b

  8. Mowzers, who knew you could find beauty in a manhole cover! Our entry today is also a study in blues.
