Over the weekend I was in the old downtown area of Council Bluffs, IA.  I loved all the abandoned old buildings with all of their colorful personalities.  I learned that they are planning to clean up this  downtown area…I hope they keep all of the character and personality that it currently has!

  1. And if they don’t (keep all the character…) you have at least frozen these moments and image in time. This is a highly motivational realization in the work my wife and I do in capturing the old and decrepit; nearly gone family farmhouses and barns in MN & WI.

    Great shot. Interesting mash-up of color and textures. The bat of insulation stuffed into the top of the one window provides some nice contrast to the other eclectic red panel window-blocking component.

  2. Always scary when people want to “clean things up”, sometimes it ruins the old look that makes place retain character. Hope not.
