From Tokyo this double cover.

Good one, Jack.

I notice that some of these covers lack an access hole, if that's the proper term, for inserting the tool that lifts the covers. I wonder how those covers are raised if there are no apparent holes for prying up the covers? Maybe someone here knows.  ???

If you look carefully there is either a hole for a hook, a center loop, or a notch at the edge for all but one, and that one is an inset to a larger cover.

I think one exception is the Budapest one.  It's hinged and has an interruption in the bezel for a tool to pry it open.

That's the one that prompted my question. I went back and found the bezel interruption, and hinged, no wonder!

Nice one Bent! This one was found in Toronto Canada. Not sure if I should post it in "Minimalism" thread instead ;-)

Here's one from Greenland.  Misplaced my notes, but I think it's in Sisimiut.

To me, it looks more ike a drain cover, than a manhole cover.

_DSC0998 by Bill de Jager, on Flickr

This is manhole in an unusual location, in a private development in the hills near San Francisco, California, USA.  Photo taken with a Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AI-S lens at f/1.2, on a Z6 with FTZ.

Indeed, the combination of the beautiful landscape and the manhole is quite unique!  And I like this image itself!
