Looking Down or Mainely Manholes

Three weeks on the road can really start getting to you. Lately I’ve been looking down. No, I'm not depressed or anything. How could you be depressed in this beautiful state. BUT i have been looking down as we’ve been walking. It is amazing what you find in streets and sidewalks. Here are some from Rockland and Portland.

So next time you’re wandering around a city check out what’s right beneath your feet. You might be surprised. And don’t forget to check out the walls.

So gald you're enjoying our mystical magical odessey, I know we are. But it will be nice to get home and back to cooking and baking and eating too much of our own food instead of someone elses food.

Well, I certainly love Maine, but even I never thought about photographing those.

Sometimes the same foundry will be making all around.

found you through Out on the prairie, love these in Canada ours are so boring, they just have fish on them to remind you that whatever you let drain into it is going into a lake somewhere.
I agree the worst part of traveling is finding good food

Evening folks,
Patty, i never know what will hit my fancy, but you know that. Welcome Prairie and Counrty Mouse. These covers date back a ways, some to the 1800's i guess. The best part is how many are from different founderies. Back then they didn't seem to care where their waste went. "Out of sight, out of mind" or as an old Ecology Prof loved to say 'the solution to polution is not dilution'.
Hope you stay with us cause coming up next is old trolleys and the last existing steam engine that ran on the now extinct New York, Philadelphia and Norfolk Railroad.
