NSFW in Santorum country…that’s great! And probably, sadly, true….
John, Santorums and their like in disguise you will probably find everywhere. In Germany we have a quite sophisticated political caste at the moment, with the consequence that things get nivellated and boring and people don’t see a big choice.
And this is the real thing?
A Klappmantelhydrant? With valves that open to the left?
Nice how there are a few red spots in the photo.
Klappmantelhydrant? Not quite – Fallmantelhydrant would be correct according to this Introduction to Hydrantology.
The orange/red dots made the image for me, and of course the semi-blurred pedestrian.
Have you ever seen an “Alter Münchner”?
I’ve downloaded almost the same pdf from another Jugendfeuerwehr two days ago … if my computer will ever be hacked the hacker might think I am a firefighter ….
No, haven’t seen it. But I can try and ask for connections to the firefighters brigade – they wanted a map from me, so I can ask for something in exchange.
And just this second I said to my BF: Oh, poor Markus – now he has to find an “Alter Münchner” for me …
regarding maps, do you know this one:
The map is interesting – pretty similar technology to what I use for our environmental mapping. And you made me curious, so I’ll see how far I get in my search for “Alte Münchner”
That’s a clever image with good positioning of the elements, the reduced colour pallette and the touches of red.
Colin, this is certainly more in my picturing realms than the nightly scenery was. I admit I have a faible for such incomplete palettes. I don’t know why, but leaving one primary color out of the image very often works for me, allows me to play better with shapes and their arrangements.
Wonderful picture, and the hydrant sure is completely different from what we’re used to.
Thanks, Carl. I had left the office for lunch break – and to fulfill Martina’s request – and it seems I was open enough to become aware of such a quiet, unobtrusive scenery.
And I thought I’d only learn something about photography here. Thanks for the intro to German hydrantism – another education gap closed (sort of…;)
Well, Thomas, didn’t you know that 3 years of blog reading are adequate to a bachelor degree?
