Week 18 - Abstraction...Caution

Sally's prompt for this week was one simple word:  abstract.

While out running (or, I could more correctly describe it as barely jogging/walking) on Tuesday with my ACC/A1 family, I noticed for the hundredth time this stack of stuff near the running path.  It's a bunch of sandbags and security blocks for when things go awry on base. I've always liked the way everything's tumbled together behind the fence...all there just in case.  I love the lines and the pop of orange. So, while the shot's not totally abstract in appearance, it's  an abstract interpretation of readiness for anything...throwing caution (tape) to the wind!

  1. This is a great abstract! That orange looks like an overlay it pops so much, doesn't even look like it was part of the scene, very cool!

  10. I'm not much of an orange fan, but the bright, bold orange just make this photo! It wouldn't be the same without it. Great abstract!

  14. Totally digging the pattern of that orange barricade stuff. And the lines of the wood leading your eye. I didn't see the sandbags until you mentioned it! Great work, Miss Jen! Enjoy the day. Erin
