I took these photos around a block downtown, on the outskirts of where all the busy streets are. I wanted to capture signs, specifically those that were painted on the buildings. I also focused on interesting ways of cropping the signs to form effective compositions. My favorite shot by far is the one with the van parked outside the bright orange brick building. The lines create such an exciting composition, and the matching tones of both the building and the van work harmoniously against each other.
