At one time the buildings in the Old Market area of Omaha, Nebraska were filled with factories, warehouses and manufacturer's of many different products. Shopping and Restaurants now occupy the street level. The upper levels of many buildings have been turned into apartments and condos.
The color of the sunlight on this building contrasting against the blue sky caught my attention. It is surprising how well the old painted signs have survived decades of weather. gs
Shape, color and shadow are what interest me in this photo. The round wheels and bike rack contrast with the square windows and rectangular doors. The shadow of the bike gives a hint about the time of day and the splash of bright color on the right contrasts with the muted colors in the remainder of the photo. This is another photo from the 2012 Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in the Old Market district of Omaha, NE.
Saturday morning I noticed that the leaves on the trees in my back yard were starting to turn. I though I'd take a trip to a nearby park to see if I could catch a little Fall color. That's what I found. very little Fall color. Only a few trees had started to turn. On the plus side, the weather was nice and it was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so.
You can see a few more photos from the day are here. -gs-
