Default Red Sign

I spent lunch looking for red. I could find burgundy, pink, orange that's almost red and so on. Lots of magenta. But very little red, or what I think of as red. I finally spotted this sign. It's not the greatest picture in the world, but I thought the sign interesting. I cloned out the phone number thinking that too many people who have lost their heads completely would flood the trouble desk number with phone calls...

The HR department must be next door to Facilities Management. Where else would they get the heads? *S*

LOL! The funny thing is that I didn't really mean to shoot this sign this way - I had been tryting to shoot it at an angle where the box would naturally cut off the phone number, but the sign was too reflective and I got a lot of glare. So I quickly took the picture straight on before returning to work. The camera I was using doesn't have a viewfinder and I was paying more attention to the vertical lines, making sure they were straight, and didn't notice I was cutting off the top line of the sign. So this is actually a failure of a picture, but it turned out to be too funny to delete.

Funny it definitely is. I guess if you want "heads to roll" this is where you would get them.
You certainly succeeded in making the glare on the sign a non-issue.
