179/365

179/3658:29am, City ~ Two fire hydrant booster doors in a row… sorry about that (not really – my project, not yours!). I saw this yesterday, and apart from glaring at the six thousand people walking through my photo (maybe a slight exaggeration!) I wasn’t concentrating properly and my composition left a bit to be desired. So… today I headed back there (at quite a pace) before work to take it again. Much better light, and my fierce glares at people walking in my direction semi-convinced them to not walk in front of me… success! Why I have an obsession with red and fire hydrant doors I have no idea – I think it is the contrast more so than the actual item and colour. Mind you – how cool are those big red fire alarms?! I was showing this to a colleague of mine on Google street view (which I’m sure he found riveting *cough*) – it actually looked much cooler then, so the decor has obviously been updated since the photographs were taken. It’s incredible just how quickly things can change…
PS – tough photo finding week this week… I’ve passed the 25km walking milestone in the past 5 days. Blah.
