Camouflage

This fire hydrant is located in front of my neighbor's house. They planted the lavender a few years back in an effort to conceal the "unsightly" hydrant. The plants are now large and full enough that they are doing just that. I think the lavender enveloped hydrant makes for a charming piece of garden art.
Garden Art. Wonderful capture! Wish we could do that here...but don't think we'd get away with it. I love lavender...

June 21st, 2013  
It sure does! I love the colours and tone of this pic! It's slightly cross processed?
June 21st, 2013  
Great idea to enhance the hydrant location. makes a beautiful shot.
June 21st, 2013  
It looks quite beautiful surrounded by the flowers.

Lovely capture and processing and great idea!

Who needs sculptures when you have a ready made one Lisa! lovely capture and I bet it smells wonderful too!

Terrific shot! Love that hydrant trying to look nonchalant. Perhaps they should have planted red-hot pokers http://www.freefoto.com/preview/12-65-2/Red-Hot-Poker

Definitely very charming, what a great idea. Wonderful light here too.
June 21st, 2013  
Now the "unsightly" becomes complementary. Lovely colour combination.
June 21st, 2013  
Lovely image. I bet it smells great too!
June 21st, 2013  
The lavender looks very pretty with the hydrant - not sure the fire service would agree though!
June 21st, 2013  
This looks so good! great composition Lisa!
June 21st, 2013  
yes, they turned it into a work of art! gorgeous colours here
June 21st, 2013

This made me laugh! Perfect title :)
June 21st, 2013

Lovely shot made by the contrasting colours...
June 21st, 2013  
Love the colour and composition of this shot. The red really pops. And the lavender is so lovely. I have some in my back garden but it isn't quite this lush ...
June 21st, 2013  
Oh, the lavendar is stunning against that red, gorgeous Lisa! It might be hard to find that hydrant in a crisis situation, especially if it was at night.
June 21st, 2013  
Great find, Lisa.
June 21st, 2013  
Gorgeous!Love the colors and how the lavender makes a curve against the black background!Beautiful light!
June 21st, 2013  
What an awesome find! Fantastic shot!
June 21st, 2013  
it looks totally in place there =)) love it =))
June 21st, 2013  
Beautiful colors and composition. How wonderful does it smell?!
June 21st, 2013  
fantastic capture! love the colors and beautiful composition! looks so pleasant!
June 21st, 2013  
just great! love the red and blue and the peeking out top of the hydrant, charming and so glad you discovered it.
June 21st, 2013  
It certainly looks like ot belongs there. The top of the hydrant reminds me of a hat nestling amongst the lavender. Makes for a nice shot.
June 21st, 2013  
Haha - well spotted Lisa! Aesthetics win over practicality every time. I love Lavender and the red hydrant really pops out of the blue hue. I like the red hot poker idea of Paul's above too. :-)
June 21st, 2013  
Love this pop of red envelopes by the purple lavender : just superb !
June 21st, 2013  
Cute! Great shot, tones and title!

This wonderful! Love the composition and light and subject and everything.
June 21st, 2013  
The two do look very good together and your capture of them is lovely - good eye!
And if the hydrant ever springs a leak, the water will smell beautiful :-D
June 21st, 2013  
Great find! I love the contrast and comp with that pop of red, nicely spotted!
June 21st, 2013  
Amy
Very nice. Love the purple/green against the red
June 21st, 2013  
Lovely contrasts. :)
June 21st, 2013  
Delightful shot
June 21st, 2013  
Love the smell of lavender! lets hope the lavender doesn't cover the hydrant completely, Idaho's finest may need it ;)
June 21st, 2013  
Awesome find... i found photographed a red hydrant last week too. Just like mine, i also love the contrast here. The green/purple against the red.. fav for me!
June 21st, 2013  
It makes a great garden ornament. Beautiful lavender xx
June 21st, 2013  
Beautiful capture and I absolutely love the colours in this. Great find Lisa.
June 21st, 2013  
@tabbycat Thank you, TC! Glad you like it. I did use a little cross processing.
June 21st, 2013  
It actually looks really cute stuck there in all that lavender! Very pretty!
June 21st, 2013  
Hope there's no fire! Painting it lavender sure isn't going to help the firefighters!
June 21st, 2013  
Beautiful touch of color in the lavender.
June 21st, 2013  
Lovely!

Lovely shot, I hope they don't have to dig up their lavender though, like my neighbor was told to do by the fire dept.....:(
June 22nd, 2013  
Now that's just cute! fav
June 22nd, 2013  
Impractical but pretty. Our hydrants are usually hidden by snow.
June 22nd, 2013  
Very cool -- I like the idea of surrounding fire hydrants with something beautiful.
June 22nd, 2013  
Beautiful job on this. A fav! I also think your neighbors did a great job camouflaging it.
June 22nd, 2013  
Fav! What a great eye you have! I noticed a few cool fire hydrants while up in the Northwest this past week, but none enshrouded with gorgeous flowers!
June 22nd, 2013  
fave, love it!
June 22nd, 2013  
oh great combo!
June 22nd, 2013  
Love it. Another fav. Great different shot of a fire hydrant.
June 22nd, 2013  
Lovely capture ..... the fire hydrant does look like it blends in :)
June 22nd, 2013  
Great shot - totally great colour combo :)
June 22nd, 2013  
What a fabulous find! Here's another fav!
June 23rd, 2013  
Just so beautiful, awesome colors together .

It looks like a little man with a hard hat standing in tall plants. Very amusing.
