The red light, 102/365

We live across the street from the park and this red light is on a post, very visible from our front window.  It is the warning light for the sewer filling up.  If we get very heavy rain, several inches per hour, or lots of snow melting fast in the spring, the sewer fills up.  Basically, if this light comes on, we need to call the city to check it out right away before our drains start backing up and flooding our basement.  Well, not just us, but many people with low basements.  Now, any time there is a storm, we take responsibility to watch for the alarm.  So, if you look at the contacts in my cell phone and see "Red Light", don't worry, it only reaches Bernie, with the city.

As far as the photo itself, I just put the sun directly behind the light to illuminate it.  It's not exactly composed the way I had envisioned it.  I shot it a little more off center, but decided to crop off a wire on the left side.  So, I think this composition was the lesser of the two evils.
