Bridge Parking

It's unusual to find a bridge with curbside parking.  Not only does this bridge have parking, but it's very congested.

Every time I drive over this bridge I think about a driver throwing their door open into my path.  I must not be alone with that thought, most of the approaching cars are edging over the line.

Union Outfitting Co.- The Old Market

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.

New Bike in the Old Market

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.

City Apartment Garden

What do you do when you live in a small downtown apartment and your thumb turns green?  You buy a few pots and put them on the fire escape.

This is a photo from the 2012 Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in the Old Market district of Omaha, Nebraska. More photos here.

Almost Fall Park Pano

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.
