Fireplugs, the Beginning

I came across the following photograph in my archives. I took it in 1988 as I was walking in NYC. Much of the city was fascinating to me but the bright, shiny face plate really caught my attention. That it was a conduit for water made it irresistible, for some reason.

Standpipe 1988

I trace my (continuing) series of photos and drawings of fire plugs to this photo. I published other hydrant photos I took, on the following posts: Fire Plugs, Getty Fire Pull, Standpipe Portrait, On the Road Again – and Fireplugs, Fun with Pipes, What Luck!, Concentration, Post-Birthday Post, Natural Graffiti.
