photoblog image Air Force Memorial entrance.

Air Force Memorial entrance.

Today, I have the side entrance of last weeks Air Force memorial. What really caught my attention is the fire hydrant in the shot. I always get a shot or too when I come accross them. You will usually see them in different colors but I've never seen a silver one.

quite impressive. probably looks better with the surroundings this way than if it was red, right? of course, the gov't probably paid $45,000 for this one. my money hard at work... wink
Dotun Ayodeji: 45K is probably too much smile

Quite the shiny hydrant that is. I bet they don't let dogs anywhere near it. I like that you caught the hydrant in the proper context with the wall sign announcing the entrance.
Dotun Ayodeji: I dont think they cared too much about this hydrant as I did, thanks Clint.

Interesting shot. I've never seen a silver one either, maybe it has a meaning? Is this Washington?
Dotun Ayodeji: Yes this is Washington DC, thanks Mia.
Nicely spotted! I was just messing around with a shot of one earlier today. This silver one is unusual. I wonder if some air force cadet has to polish it every day.

That's a posh hydrant; just as it should be in those surroundings.

I don't remember when they started painting fire hydrants silver, Dotun, but they're that way all over Atlanta now. Another great shot, especially with the buildings in the background!
