Pipe Ends

A workman chuckled as I stepped into the street to take photos of the truck laden with pipes. To him, they were the mundane supplies of a job waiting to be done. To me, they were an arresting pattern. A circle is the ultimate example of perfect symmetry, the same all around, without beginning or ending point. This makes the differences in sizes and colors stand out. The shapes of those pipe ends remain orderly in the midst of quiet disorder. You could call it a design oxymoron.
