I'm not in Seattle at present but visiting another beautiful, rainy Pacific Northwest city for the weekend. Can you guess from this street fixture where in the world Kimmie could be today? I'll be meeting another City Daily Photo Blogger tomorrow for a photowalk, and that will be fun!

This is probably the most interesting manhole cover I have ever seen — I love it!

Unfortunately, I cannot even begin to guess where you are. But I hope you and the other CDP blogger enjoy your day tomorrow!

Our's have "Made in Dayton, O" on this. How interesting is that?

I like this one.

Hi.
Around the world i guess there is allot of different manhole covers, like the one you took allot of them is a piece of art.
In my city (bergen) we also have some nice covers.

Thanks for all of your nice posting and beautiful pictures

I'll bet you're in Portland, since there are a lot of brick buildings and sidewalks there...and I'll bet you're meeting Meead from Iran!

Any prize for me, or just glory? :<)

A beautiful manhole cover...I'm so glad you took a photo of it to share with us.

Are you in Vancouver? Vancouver is so cool, I could see it having aesthetically pleasing manhole covers like this. But then again, Portland is a pretty arty town, too. Where are you, Kimmie!?!?!?

USelaine said...

Or Victoria?

Tash said...

Very pretty & interesting - I love manhole shots. I recall another impressive cover of Kanalizacia in Beograd by bibi - some time in May (before I started PVDP). I'll guess Portland/Meead also.

Kitty said...

hmmm!! I have no clue.
But I am intrigued!

Maya said...

I'm going to guess Bellingham. Love the photo!

I say you're in Vancouver or surrounding area.

It is a classy place wherever you are! That is not only functional but artistic. The first and last time I was moved to take a photo of a manhole cover was in Rome, Italy when it still had leftover confetti on it from a parade the day before :) This is lovely!!

Islipian said...

What a lovely find! Plus, a reminder to look down...and up! I think we spend so much time looking just straight out at our own level, we forget there are others. Thanks for sharing.

Gwyn said...

I'm guessing Portland. I've never seen such a beautiful manhole cover. Great capture.

Marcel said...

I too wonder about Vancouver or Victoria. Wherever you are I hope you are having a good time!!

I certainly hope that they have considered the security of that there manhole.

On another note, this is a beautifully composed photo.

Chuck Pefley said...

I'm going to guess Port Townsend.

Wherever it is and you are, I hope you are enjoying yourself!

Barbara Rahal said...

mm No clue, but I hope you are having a great time...if you get even close to Vancouver , I would love to meet you for walks and coffee! have fun out of Seattle!!! :O)

USelaine said...

Hmmm. Maybe she disappeared down a rabbit hole...

jill said...

I know, I know! Cause I read your twitter!

Professor said...

This is so much fun! And since I've been to Seattle or Washington, I'm going to guess tacoma!

Jilly said...

Wherever you are they have beautiful bricks and wonderful manhole covers. Love the photograph with the fallen leaves.
