Finalist
Submitted for the PG101 Sign Theme
This was taken on a clear, sunny October day. It's the top of the Family Fun Center on Dodge Street in Omaha and the photo is entered with the owner's written permission. I love the bold colors and graphics and the sort of "X marks the spot" impact of the sign itself.
Colors brightened and freshened in PSE4. Entered in Elements of Design.
