Our regular readers will be excited that it’s Picture of the Day Month here on AYII. (Yeah, we didn’t really think about the acronym when we named the blog.) Each day in March we’ll post a picture of a scene from the day. Hopefully you won’t see twenty-seven pictures of Sharon and me sitting on our couch.
We start our series with a bit of gritty realism–some pictures of the recession.
My office is located in the “business park” section of the Omni Park Shopping Center in Santry. Several shops have closed in the past year: a laptop shop, an independent bookstore, a luggage shop, a kid’s clothing store, two food stands (a total of four times) and the latest failure, Hughes and Hughes bookstore which closed over the weekend. The Omni now has no bookstore.
Check back tomorrow for the next installment.
