While other’s travel to exotic locations and capture amazing sunsets and sunrises I walk the mean street of St. Paul and photograph what I call “urban hardware”. Why? Because someone has to do it.
It has been awhile since I have added to my collection of urban hardware. I found this fire hydrant in Minneapolis with a lock on it. I guess they have to lock them down?
It has been awhile since I have added to my collection of valves. I need to go out and find some more. I like this one because it is green. Red and yellow are far more common.
it has been some time since I have added to my collection of valve photographs. I don’t think I have ever photographed a hydrant in the snow either. This is an old one and the snow adds some character and will make a nice addition to my collection.
I am pretty excited about the latest addition to my collection of photographs of valves. This valve is not only rusty but it is near the water which makes a wonderful background for a rusty valve.
