Simple Thing, Wonderful Design

Natural beauty is always pleasing to the eye — whether a landscape or seascape or close-up of a flower. But there is an abundance of beauty in repeating motifs that are manufactured — hard edged items that might be overlooked on a daily basis as you move around in the world.

This won’t be the first time you’ve seen me post one of these. As I walk through any city or town that is new to me, I try to remember to look up to see the architectural details on buildings, out to see the eye-level view, and down to see the occasional surprises on the ground.

Here is a particularly nice example of a hard surface design — a manhole cover from the streets of Dresden, Germany.
