Photo Nectar: “Stop & Go” at Oranjestad, Aruba
For me, a good photo is about color and composition. If a picture has to say "a thousand words," then it had better be one heck of a picture, because I love words!
This photo really stood out for me in Aruba because of its urban feel. There's something so vivid and city-slick about it (the two cars, and the bright red fire hydrant). The "Stop & Go" painted sign is funny because there are so many back roads in Aruba, and intersections where there SHOULD be stop signs but aren't. So the "Stop & Go" is actually a wish for order in a city where order is a little more lax than usual.
But the Caribbean flavor speaks for itself: can't you tell you're not in Kansas anymore?
