A colour version of this image was included in a post entitled ‘Rural Reflections‘ that I put up last year, but I think that the greyscale conversion works well.

On one of the weekend photography courses I attended in Abu Dhabi, we were let loose to look for something ‘quirky’. I saw the word “Empty’ written next to a manhole cover.
