Red....

Ok, so I'm a little late posting my photos for the Amelie & Atticus Challenge - it's turning out to be one of those weeks. Forgive me.

This week's colour was red (obviously) and I thought I'd stick with a theme - fire hydrants (again, kind of obvious). I pass plenty of hydrants on my way to the office every morning so finding them wasn't a problem, and it was a good exercise in overcoming the embarassment of taking photos of odd things amidst peak-hour foot-traffic in the city.

I've imposed some rules of my own on the A&A Challenge. Namely, all images must be in portrait orientation and no cropping or adjustment is permitted. It means I have to put more thought into the composition when I'm taking photos which can only be a good thing. You can see what the rest of the challengers submitted here.

(P.S. Don't blame me if your dog pees on your computer).

i like the rules you have set for yourself... it's not just about finding the subject, but composing an image of it as well...

my dog gus would pee on each and every one of the hydrants if he could. 10 years of having to stop every 15 feet so he can mark his territory is getting OLD. (and so is he, so i should not complain and enjoy him as much ad possible, but really, every 15 feet you gotta pee?!!)
