I came across a number of these hydrants (all with different numbers) while walking along a nearby trail. I liked the bold red and blue colors. I’d taken a picture of one of them already, but I liked the background more on this one: the contrast between the colorful hydrant and the much more subdued, almost monochrome background; and the way the sticks in the background seem to swirl around and frame the hydrant.

This picture also shows how sharp this about 1952 vintage Carl Zeiss Jena 50mm f3.5 T coated Tessar is.

Taken with a Sony NEX 5N and the above mentioned lens.
