Manhole Covers
by Sidi J. Mahtrow


It lies there
Surrounded by metal, as its own
Encased in concrete
Long hardened and dark with age.

But below,
A hidden kingdom
Where elves play
Emitting foul aromas
That keep mankind away.

And in these dark recesses
Lurks a time capsule of the past
When man walked upright
And shouldered his burdens
But, alas, no more.

The manhole cover, Covers.

A primeira é engraçada e original, da segunda gosto muito, boas cores e acabamento. Logo que os bueiros ficam à face da estrada e não dão cabo dos pneus do carro... nada contra.

Cool set! I like the fish and hook,but even more I like the participation in the first shot most. It's great when you can convey an idea to a group and follow through to the end!

Superbes plaques attirant l'oeil et maintenant les odeurs nauséabondes hors de notre nez. Nos sens visuel et olfactif sont satisfaits :))

I thought about shooting some manhole covers recently, but then I thought, "Nah." Silly me. Smart you! Good job!
