Shadow Shot Sunday - Public works shadows

A bright day for a photo essay in an odd place
A chrome laden piece of equipment

A beautiful day for shadows
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back and the place and subject for today's post is different - at the Ansonia WPCA, and the subject, a newly purchased sewer vacuum truck. Granted, it is expensive at $360,000. However, Ansonia is an old town, 125 years this year, with old infrastucture. This truck can vacuum the old vitrified clay sewer pipes before they fail, which would cost way more in road and construction repairs (the property tax payers appreciate that :). Given the brisk but beautiful day, shadows add the artistic touches to this chrome laden piece of equipment...

Most certainly a beautiful day for shadows in your 'hood! How nice that the public works area gets recognition too. Our unsung heroes.

Have a great week ahead!
