D152 /D153 It ain't pretty!

Blogger did not let me post yesterday. I couldn't even comment on people's blogs I follow. That really irritated me.
So today I give you two post. Day 152 & 153
It ain't Pretty but it's the Daily Post challenge #204
"Manhole covers have character and quietly tell a story. Make a photo of a manhole cover in your neighborhood today."
What story does this manhole tell? That we live in an interesting place. That we live in a suburban area. With the city to one side of us and the country to the other side. That it's collected many grass clippings, leaves and acorns.
Manhole cover
It's like a filter and when it's taken too much at once or too much garbage period it goes into overflow and backs up.
Sort of like my brain. It's overloaded with activity and info and the filter is full. Today I have a migraine. Time to slow down and give the old filter a break.

Yesterdays Daily shoot was to capture sun flair. I had to enhance my sun flair in PS but I redid it today.

Lovely work! Your manhole cover is interesting! It definitely tells a story of a homey neighborhood.

Nice sunflare. Did you have the same problem with sunflare that I had yesterday? I didn't even think of "enhancing" it in PS. Huh. I just might try it anyway!

Love the manhole shot. Wonderful texture and love the grass peeking through the holes. I think those grass add life to this shot.

Like the pov on the other shots.

I like how you shot your manhole cover. In fact, I like the idea of the manhole cover so much that I decided to us it as inspiration for my 365 today. :)

The sun flair with the flower is beautiful, I'm glad you got a second chance to shoot it.

The manhole is fabulous. I love the perspective. My first thought would have been to shoot it straight down from above. Love the side shot.
