Most of the manhole covers in Denver’s Lower Downtown Historic District have the same design, as you can see below. I found the uniform design a little boring.

    You are one of the few that has learned to see the beauty being trod upon. Congratulations for many thanks for sharing.
    I once went into a framing shop with a found object on a road. The lady carefully took it [with gloves on] over to a large magnifying light. She took her time and finally said, “This is wonderful. . .where did it come from?” I said in return, “I found it on the corner of 21st and 7th East” At this she tossed the old beautiful oil can lid that had been run over at least a million times and took on the impression of the tarmac below. You see, it lost all interest for her and was nothing more than common garbage. That frame with double matting, cost me over $25 [1976 money] It still graces my wall to this day and has the exact effect on anyone else that admires it . . .until they realize what it is. Welcome to the club of those who see everything and it’s beauty as a conceptual art piece in the making. Again I thank you for your interests and sharing them with your fellow observers. I wish you the best of all things,
