...where I wandered around in the Omaha Old Market and practiced photography.

This is for the guy that I saw on Modern Marvels that collects bricks.
Got this one?

What you can't see is that the stack is in the middle of a muddy puddle.

Collection of spoons in an antique store. I only wanted to see if I could hand-hold and still get the photo. Guess so.

And in honor of our upcoming trip to Mexico...expensive metal from Mexico! It would be more fun and cheaper to drive to Mexico and get your own.

More antique store stuff. The name of one of the cans caught my eye. Same idea as the spoons, though.

Antique?

Note all the "antiques" in the background.

O! Public Art Project. Gary Day, Printmaker and New Media Artist, Omaha, NE in collaboration with Anna Monardo, Writer, Omaha, NE. "Best Moments in Omaha". Anna Monardo asked residents who relocated to Omaha from other countries to describe their favorite moments in the city. Gary Day painted the participants' stories, recorded in twenty different languages, onto their O!, which has a diverse, narrative power.

All O!ver Omaha. Summer Challenge. Question $5 has been revised. Name an Old Market business that can be seen from this O! sculpture location.

"For the safety of the viewer and the artwork, please do not touch, stand or sit on the sculpture."

Just your stereotypical Old Market store front.

...and this is it, folks. The Old Market. If I was a true Omahan, I'd just know that this is 11th and Howard, looking north-west. I had to look it up.

Omaha skyline. Michael Jahn has about the same photo on Panoramio (Google Earth), but with only the First National Bank tower, not the Woodmen Tower. Poor Woodmen, it used to be such a big shot.

The "curve" in the upper right corner is not an artefact. It's actually there. The bricks look like something pushed them in.
