This is another storm drain picture with two crops that place different emphasis on the texture of the drain surface, a gull taking flight as I took the picture and the overall setting.
You can find the other storm drain pictures through this link. Sorry about the poor cropping job on the image below. I only noticed the white strip when proofing in WP and my computer is in the shop so can’t edit it and upload a new version.
And, if its your birthday today, then HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
