Man Hole Covers Valencian Style!

Bet the post title got you!!! LOL
But really this post IS about man hole covers!!!
Call me strange.....yep I know you already do :)....but I can't help searching for man hole covers to photograph when I go on holiday get a much better class of man hole abroad I find! HOL
The UK variety just don't do it for me!
So here is a selection of Valencian man hole covers

That last one is a's one of the type that are at the side of the pavement (you can just see the faded yellow lines) where the rain water from the road drains down
......what do you think?
Go on....admit it.....they do have a certain charm!
I've got loads more too.........O.K. O.K.
.........perhaps you can have too much of a good thing....I'll save those for another time.
....Oh yes I will!! HOL
Thanks for looking
xoxo Sioux
P.S. I am sure someone will tell me there is a collective name for this but honest I am not such an anorak as to have ever bothered to look it up!!!
P.P.S. Pip used to despair of me taking photo's of these....he'd say "People will think you're odd"...then I'd say "And?!" HOL


  1. I thinks these are lovely. Just goes to show what is about if you just look. Daren't tell you what my DH used to photograph years ago!!! -No not me, something that gets left on a pavement!! A joke with the kids.

  2. Wow!! Who would have thought something so ordinary could be made to look so beautiful! WHY aren't our manhole covers like that??

  3. I love these... thanks for sharing your... erm... rather odd hobby with us ROFL :O))Only joking hun, I think that these look fab... they have some rather smart ones in Barcelona too.. not that I have been looking LOL xx

  4. What brilliantly ornate covers, never seen anything like it. Thank you for showing them. Annette x

  5. Hehe! I can happily tell you.. you are NOT the only one!! My daughter loves them too.. she found loads in China! & er the odd squished bug! now that's NOT right!!
