Two valves and a head

By handlerstudio  
Another photo from the same fairgrounds as yesterday's spokes. In the middle of a lawn sat this fire hydrant....and those are the colors. No rust, for those aficionados of ferric oxide, but some cool worn paint.

So here is the challenge, following up yesterday's responses that got pretty punny at times (you know who you are, Simon and Alan). What does a fire plug unleash?

In theory water. But do you guys call a spark plug, a fire plug! So an engine, or motor. Just a thought Peter.

Great colours on the Hydrant and I was wondering how it would look closer up as an abstract ? Now you can tell me if im being picky but I would have suggested that the hydrant was straightened up a little in the image.
