    There are moments when this is the only word I want to say.

    This picture is also an exercise is balancing the colors and lines of the surroundings with the sign.

    My gramma lives in Wyoming and on her street there are “deer crossing” signs with a silhouette of a deer. One year during the Christmas holiday season, she put little round red stick-on reflectors on their noses so they all looked like Rudolph!

    Sometimes a pause is just not enough.
    It has to be a full stop.

    A very successful exercise in color and lines. Love the perspective that makes the sign so large.

    Hey! You did really good lining up all the lines too. I’m glad you mentioned that, and that I saw it. There’s a sort of poetry almost to how the sign and all the power lines line and square up. Nice, bright, sharp colors too. You did really good. Thank you for sharing it :-)

    I love the perspective and depth in this picture. :)

  15. Angela Alvarez Says:

    I agree with Indrani. Sometimes you have to STOP. Nice shot!

  16. AVCr8teur Says:

    From your perspective, this sign looks bigger than usual and means business. I always like the industrial areas of SF where you shoot.

  17. Kitty Says:

    That is a word I want to use sometimes too. I see a little sticker on the sign. I wonder if it says ‘go’. :)

  18. SandyCarlson (USA) Says:

    Exactly. We need to do that. And then start again with a spirit of wonder.

  19. Robin from Israel Says:

    Yikes. With that arresting a sign I guess I’d better (stop)!

    PS Time got away from me a bit this year but Summer Stock Sundays will be kicking off this weekend :).

    An eye-stopping photo. Interesting that you were playing with the lines, as the first thing I visualized was a city necklace with a stop sign pendant, slowly being draped over the landscape.
