Pic(k) of the Week: Hexopus


Walking out of the store, the sun peeked out from the clouds and I took the shot. Really? The sun walked out of the store?

Illogically misplaced modifiers: a scourge of writers. (The second clause, a hackneyed idiom, I'll keep, though.)

But, indeed, a brief moment of bright sunlight, on an otherwise overcast day, did highlight this six-valve manifold with shadow and saturation. And just long enough for me to grab my camera. (Yes, I rarely leave home without it.)

Here's the same 'hexopus' but rendered monochrome and cropped Instagram-style.

Hexopus (02)

Both images: a circular 6-valve manifold (hexopus?), stationed on a brick wall outside of a big-box store, in Atlanta (Edgewood), Georgia, on 22 January 2019.
