Isn't it crazy how EVERYTHING is designed. I've been noticing them too since my trip to Rome but your post inspired me to do a google search of manhole covers. Very cool.[jenn]
awww I was just back in Japan for new years and I was talking manhole covers pictures everywhere, too!!! They are all different depending on where you are in Japan and they all look so pretty. I should share them on my blog soon -- thanks for sharing!!!
oops. I meant "I was TAKING manhole cover pictures" -- sorry, I got too excited! :P
Cool! I'd love to see what other Japanese one's you've seen!
i do that too!! i started when i studied abrouad in England, and since then have a collection from China, Japan (by far the best ones) Denmark and Italy. I should make a book really. so should you! i wanna see what else you've got.
