Dianne, I am loving, loving, loving this shot!

What a wonderful capture. Not only do I like the vintage-look of the store front, but I also love the simple black and white, with the splash of red lettering.

And the shadows?

Bellissima!

Thanks for sharing, dear lady!

Have a MARVI weekend!

Very pretty! I like the old fashioned window awnings. We had soemthing like that on our house when we moved to it many years ago. Now I regret that we took them down!

I like the reflection of the car. And the blue awnings I haven't seen like that here in MI. Thanks for sharing!

A great reflection shot - and they sell cars?

Woody said...

It's very black and white with a touch of red and a great reflection. I love these old style facades, they draw you into the store with the angled entry.

great building providing great shadow shots!!!

Ralph said...

The old building is a stylish showroom by itself. The intricate shadows are artistic, the back of the sign almost more detailed than the letters up front. And the awnings add cool shadows - and the black stripes are like shadows, too. A wondrful store - and capture!

Very creative modern styling of an old building! Great streetscape presentation!

STEF said...

I agree, the exteriors are as interesting as their interiors. =) Here's my SSS share. Happy Sunday!

Patti said...

The buildings you photograph in your neck of the woods always look so nice..streetscapes worthy of a Hollywood set.

Our downtown is pretty dingy in comparison, sad to say. It has improved a bit in recent years but still has a long way to go.


I like all the shadows around the sign. The lights must create interesting shadows on the sign at night.

Great picture -- the store looks interesting in itself and the reflections and signage are wonderful.

STILT WALKER?

Have a happy Sunday.

Great capture of the shadows on that sign. Some are so symmetrical and neatly spaced, these are helter skelter and couldn't have been orchestrated or planned by anyone or anything except nature. Very nice.

Peace

Very good photos with nice shadows and nice reflection in the window in the first one.

Regards!

Joan said...

Nice shadows and I love this sign.

Kelly said...

I think I would enjoy going inside this store! Nice shadows, too. :)

EG Wow said...

I don't like to shop BUT I bet I would enjoy looking around this place, inside and out. :)

Daryl said...

What a great bunch of my favorite things you've caught here ...

JM said...

Clever title and very nice façade.

Sivinden said...

Great reflections an shadows in the same shot. I like the car in the window!
