Drain & Inspection Covers On my Walk
« on: 10/07/2009 11:53:11 »
Inspired by Herman,

Prepare yourselves for what I am sure will become required viewing worldwide and part of every educational syllabus what ever the subject.

What follows is a bold investigative exploration into the seedy world of Drain & Inspection covers. This sheepy has quite literally put himself at no risk whatsoever to venture as far afield as a whole 20 meters from my own home. I have had to not dodge bullets and have had to not avoid being  hit by any vehicles.....

Enjoy !!...and I hope all ewe foot fetishists enjoy it them too !!


Quality !



Incredible !


Astounding !


Sexy !


Mind Blowing !

Strictly speaking, none of these are actual drains, by the way...

I was expecting these sorts of things:


But yours are nicer.

This Japanese one is quite nice: I wouldn't mind it hanging on my wall ...



[Have to be a bloody secure hook holding it there though  :).]

I'm not going to say 'you must be feeling drained, sheepy', or say they are 'grate pictures'. I'm not, I'm just not going to say that.

About a decade ago there were a family of (UK?) artists whose work consisted of recreating one square meter exact replicas of pavement and road, including drain covers, which were then hung on the wall. (I think they made a mould of the pavement-curb-road and painted it).

It's really annoying that I cannot find their work via google. I'm sure I didn't imagine it.
Anybody recognise what I'm on about ?

You don't even need a camera, just light-sensitive paper (to make a photogram) ...
