I'd be sure to watch my step coming aboard, but is there a similar sign for when you get off? I am always super-cautious when getting off a train....there's that dark gap....oh.

I love the deep red and pale ochre!

Contrasting colors and sign are a perfect warning!

it looks like a step onto a train. Perhaps it is. I'm confused you can see.

Love yesterday's sunset. Spectacular.

The composition here has such simple elegance. I love the blocks of vivid color and the ominous dark quadrant...the unknown...which is underscored by the WATCH YOUR STEP...which could be literal or symbolic. Wonderful, V.

Theme Day? That comes once a month, right? Plenty of time to miss it.

Not sure I can step that high anymore!

Jilly,
Yes it is an old caboose that the Chamber of Commerce there uses as an office!

I like anything red!

I have been having problems seeing your blog lately. It gives me some weird error message and then everything disappears. And it is only your... :(
I hope the web is not trying to keep me away from the magic city!

What a great place to go to work. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to miss that step.

Use the side rails on those steps! Love the rouge, V, love the rouge!

"Mind the gap" comes to mind with those words.
Nice graphic quality!
