The poor, ignored traffic cones! Good you came along to give them their fifteen minutes of fame.

Thanks, Bob. I like to draw attention to everyday things we rarely pay attention to.

Those traffic cones look as if they have had a tough life.

There has been a long building boom in Toronto, Jean. These cones have probably seen a lot of buildings go up and a lot of road repairs and improvements (we have a lot of them, too, because of the climate).

Wonderful color contrasts and human half perceived presence.
I suppose that here is the real meaning of urban.

Good point, José. It just struck me that there's no advertising (aka propaganda) in the shot to obscure what's actually appening.

Thanks, George. I was thinking of the shot as an illustration of science vs commerce.

I like the crop, its defamiliarising effect: it’s like a specimen of city life on a slide seen under a microscope.

At least part of the effect, I think, comes from the absence of advertising that I mentioned earlier. Most people seem to let advertising guide their lives these days. Humph.

My groups invites are not your cp of tea John ? They have been drying there for a while....

Actually, Léopold, I've joined a few groups as a result of your invitations. If I decline an invitation it's usually because I think the photo wouldn't really fit.

If you could let me know which photos you're interested in I'd be happy to reconsider.

Well, that's a nice assortment of cones, John. Still Life with Suit Men. Weird all the way, just how I like it!

Thanks, Diane. As I mentioned to Bob, I like things we don't often pay attention to.
