Three quarters (plus a dime) view

A three quarters view of a Ford 5 window coupe from 1935, all dressed in black.  Except for the changing of the rear wheels from wires to hubs, this classic car is as it was.  Even though it is parked, the shape and silhouette make it seem like it is moving.

N.B. according to the stats, this is No. 500.  Already?

Smoke gets in your sun

Smokey sunset
Five minutes before sun hide

Smoke from the forest fires twenty six hundred miles away reaches our shores.  Five minutes later, the pall in the western sky hid the setting sun.

Brass diamonds

Smith brass cover
Smith Co. 14x14 cap

The design of this 14 x 14 diamond pattern utility access cover incorporates diamonds as fields for the Smith Co. company logo.  Soles of passers-by shoes prevent this brass cap from developing a true patina; instead it stays slightly burnished.

Water cover arches

Water Ametek utility cover

Seen in the street beneath our feet, this water curb service utility box cover by Ametek features some curving design elements and a slot for a pentagon bolt. 

Covers of a similar design are produced by Maclean Highline of Fort Mill, South Carolina.  Those use the "Highline" name, switching the "water" and brand name locations.  The "Pentek" brand covers also this similar design.
