Frigiliana manhole cover

All the local towns and villages seemed to have their own custom designs, rather nice I think.

John you have just shown us why it often pays to look down as much as up when we are taking photographs. What an anusual manhole very interesting.
John Prior: Thanks Scotia, very true. Someone had put real effort into producing these.
What a fine manhole cover. Mind you here it would still be nicked, melted down and flogged to China
John Prior: Thanks Bill, although China does most of the flogging these days.
Terrific capture! (:o)
John Prior: Thank you Rosalyn

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these manhole covers, John. I think one could make a fabulous art book of them from all over Europe in particular...if one hasn't done so already.
John Prior: Thank you Ginnie, good idea, nice to make rubbings of them also, probably end up in jail smile

A work of art in itself John
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I like the unwarranted attention to detail smile
A lot of work gone into making the mould for that and the picture really does it justice in mono John.
John Prior: Thanks a lot Brian.

very cool. ours are so boring here.
John Prior: Thanks Otto, so are most of ours.
I often take pictures of manhole covers when we're on holiday, they're much more interesting than the British ones.
John Prior: Yes EJ I agree, Thank you.
Unusual. I like the effect very dynamic around the circle.
Have a nice day.
John Prior: Thank you, the surrounding stones were a bit distracting.
