Random Collection

While in Chicago, I started taking pictures of manhole covers. There were so many different designs, and so many different utilities. I was captivated by the magnitude of the hidden underground network that runs a city. Of course, I couldn't capture all of the ones I wanted to - many were in the middle of the road, as I was scurrying across. I may have to revisit this idea. Wouldn't it make an interesting art installation, a collection of utility covers? (Just say yes.)
