Dianne,
I love the photo! I am a 'studier' I like to look for things most people don't or wouldn't normally see in pictures. My first thought was the red light was the signal to stop and see beauty around...and the sky is aboslutely astonishing, but so is the architecture of the building...clean lines and even the lining up of the photo is 'perfect' in lining up with the tiles....
nice work!

Fantastic capture as always, Dianne! You get better every day! So glad you share them with us! Gorgeous skies and the red light seems to say, slow down and enjoy the beauty! Have a great weekend! Hugs to Hope as always!

I had a good laugh with your picture... That red light seems so close to the wall behind... Great optical effect, and the reflection is just perfect.

Hehehe! Yes, it's very important to stop and look. I was so taken by the reflection of the sky that a nearly missed the shadow. :))

That's a really cool shot!

Ralph said...

Wow, the timeless blue sky is reflected - in windows on a classically shaped old building. The stoplight shadow adds an aura to the beautiful architecture. If you are going to have to stop on red anyway, enjoy the sights on your wait for the green...

Wonderful shot, love the details.

Dimple said...

Wonderful shot!

Woody said...

It's a cool shot! I'd think it might be difficult to see the light while driving, but maybe not. Great sky!

Rebecca said...

God you got a chance to stop and see that sky!
