A hard-hitting image- rough blocky shapes and jolt of color.
Incredible shot, Niall.
Niall, your photographic eye is among the best! That I'm moved by a stack of highway cones is proof enough!
Great strong image.
composition, colours, textures and forms ARE great...
bravo Niall !!!
Excellent eye to isolate this portion of the cones. Makes for a very interesting composition. I really like this.
Must have been hard finding cones that weren't in use on the road... :-) Nice splash of colour!
I hear Penguin Books calling...LOL!
Stacked in disarray, their corner bits going every which way, the cones nicely fill the entire frame. With just the peek of orange from the last one, as if it's trying to slip away quietly - unnoticed by the others. To stand on a street alone. Just one time ... with no other cones about. Something to remember while sitting in the junk heap in years later. He, alone, was a beacon of caution to the world.
