Partial Eclipse – Manhole Edition

Before I realized the solar eclipse was coming, I came across these two manhole covers. Actually, they are probably only circular utility service covers.

I liked the way they looked, but I was walking with a group of people and only had a hot second to get the shot.

I probably couldn’t have gotten both in the frame without a stepladder, but I like the photo as it is. I think of it as a snapshot of the moon just before it passed in front of the sun (if the cover on the right was bigger, and the one on the left didn’t have a hinge).
