Summertime in Texas. Even the fire hydrants have to have shade, since water is quite precious.

Dressing up a fire hydrant is not a new idea but it is always amusing to see. My wife and I have both taken photos of hats on hydrants. There are many places around the country where fire hydrants are painted up in the form of little men.

Although not a new idea, it is a good one nonetheless, and definitely qualifies for the challenge.

I believe this guy is called the Water Bandit around these parts. Very novel idea.

Walter, I like how the noon day sun shines thru the holes in the hat onto the fire hydrant.

cal, we have some hydrants as little men.I am told that the colors they use in the hydrant painting tell the firemen how much water pressure that hydrant will give them.
