My good friend and talented artist Tiffany Choong (scroll down for her site link) once drew my attention to fire hydrants. Does anybody actually see those faithful public servants? No. Only dogs find them useful to… Well. You know. Ever since Tiffany published the above drawing of a hydrant in Singapore, my life has taken a new turn. I now see fire hydrants everywhere. Some look evil. Some look like good guys. What do ya think?

San Francisco fire department. A fire hydrant with a glow. Look carefully.
French fire hydrant, city of Taverny in the suburbs of Paris. Blue, grey and red. National colours. Sort of.

L‘Isle-Adam, marches of Normandy. Home of Villiers de l’Isle-Adam, a 19th century fantasy, mystery and horror writer. Town folk say some hydrants walk around at night… This one looks mean.

And as a fitting conclusion, allow me to present another sketch – and thought – by Tiffany Choong:

A lovely week to y’all.
