Young Immigrant

I don't recall seeing a sign by this statue, and so I'm calling it a young immigrant. It looks like this young man is new to America, and has everything he owns in the bag. Why has he left his homeland, and where will his hopes and dreams take him?

Narrow building

This building has always caught my attention, because of it's pretty color, and odd shape. See how narrow it is on the left side? The other side is wider. There are railroad tracks directly behind the building. I'm guessing (and only guessing) the tracks were there first! I often wonder what the original purpose of this building was, and what other businesses have used it. It's located at Broadway and 21st. From the signs in the windows, it looks like it's up for sale.

Walking the Dog

... Or, is the dog walking the human?
Photo taken in the fall, near Oak Park.

At night

Yesterday's post of this building was taken in the fall, during daytime.
This one was taken during the Christmas season, at night.
It stands out nicely with the green lighting.

Live, work, and play

Luxury apartments, Health club, Swimming pool, Putting range, Conference rooms, Business offices, Retail shops, Restaurants, and more. A place to live, work, and play - all in one downtown building. In this photo the building appears to lean, but in actuality - the camera was leaning. I wanted to show this building today, so that tomorrow I can show how it looks like, at night, during the Christmas season. There use to be a restaurant on one of the top floors , and from the windows you could see some really nice views of where the two Arkansas Rivers (the large and the small) merge into one. Not sure what's up there now, but from the same windows - it must be a lovely view of The Keeper of the Plains, as well as other directions around the city.
