Clark Furniture - Everything Must Go

Clark Furniture

I live a few blocks away from this store, at Clark and Ridge, and have wanted to get a good photograph of its exterior for a while.  It's going out of business, so now seemed like the time.  Shooting this at sunset was an intentional choice.  The city really comes alive for me at this time of day, with the warm tones and sharp angles of light.  In this shot I particular like how the darkened street creates three distinct zones: the street, the storefront, and the sky.

Nikon D50 with 24mm lens, 1/200sec exposure at f8.
