Black, white, and yellow all over

So I was driving down the highway, and I passed this truck full of yellow PVC pipes.  The light was really great and I was thinking the pipes would make a really interesting photo, but of course I was driving.  Not that I'm above snapping a photo here and there from the car, but not on the highway!  So I pull over at a rest stop down the road, and just as I'm getting back in my car, what comes driving in?  The yellow pipe truck!  So I got my shot after all.  The light wasn't quite as "glowy" as I remembered, but the thing I like about this photo is that it is both over- and under-exposed.  I like the black centers, and the white hot circles.  This will be my last post this week.  I'm heading out of town again.  This time on a vacation down by Monterey.  Hopefully I'll have some good vacation shots to post when I get home next Friday.  Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!

Yes, this is an excellent graphic composition, with the range of changing tones and color. Great and fortuitous capture Melissa. Hope you enjoy your trip to Monterey :^)
