I'm not one to make New Years Resolutions. I believe that a simple turning of a calendar day shouldn't be the significant change in your life, it should happen any time you want to make a change.

So this isn't my resolution, even though it would be a good one. I do a ton of online shopping, and really try to avoid stores if possible. But the local shops deserve patronage to keep the community alive and well.

Not sure how this will be received. It's basic, but has some nice qualities. The way the colors of the board pop out against a partially desaturated background, and the early morning activity of a possible patron combine to make something I enjoy.

I like the idea here but would like to see more people on the sidewalk to add a bit more interest.

Pleasant colors here, the green lettering very similar to the painted wall and the fuchsia similar to the frame of the sign.
