Be my guest: a different point of view

My friend Julie sent me these beautiful cards that she made from photos she took on a recent trip to Tokyo. I was expecting cherry trees, shrines maybe a statue or two. But her eye for detail captured something I would never have seen – manhole covers.


Each one is so unique – they remind me of enamel medallions.


Julie’s a fantastic graphic designer and her artistic point of view has reminded me to look around because you never know where you’ll see creative inspiration – even down on the ground.

  1. The covers here in Vancouver have First Nation's art on them. The ones I like best depict the salmon. They are a bronzy colour metal.
