Carl, nice. I can't figure out the purpose of the awning.

Funny how much that milk can, or whatever it is beside the door adds to the picture.

Yeah, it's a bit of a mystery. This used to be a small print shop. I don't know whether it moved or closed. It had been there for at least twenty years.

Definitely a "Tyler" type of shot! Love the orange color. What's the action above the door? Are they bricks, or wood blocks?

John, just checked the original at 100%. It's a chunk of plywood supporting some rotted structure in the door/window frame area, a temporary repair.

Plus, the awning mystery is resolved. I confused this with another building-with-awning a few hundred yards up the street. This building is in its most recent of many incarnations as bar or restaurant, and I think the awning is there to make some shade for cafe tables set up on the sidewalk.

Really like the photo. The awing seems to be suspended on a different plain and removed from the wall. The direction of the shadow is perfect... did you have to wait for that?

Thanks, John. Didn't wait for it, but it's far from the first time I've walked by at different times of day, different light, different weather.
