OOoooh, I loe the brickwork on the top of that building and the colors are great, nice details!

Jacob said...

Thank you all! This is an older building on Ft. King street...and the shop was recently renovated. I thought they did a good job on the colors, although I'm not sure how long the building will last!

Wow, nice colors!!! I would like to take up painting again in January, and this is what I want my colors to look like. You are inspiring me!

Not only do I like the photo, but I like the name.

I was worried about the wording--fresh & vintage--but you explained it well.

You know what they say about assume! No the Eagles are not on my property but not too far away. Aren't they great. MB

Sorry for your pessimist attitude, I like this renovated building: it's original and eye catching. But probably you know better...

Kate said...

The colours give the building a very festive look!

A colour scheme like this makes your office easy to find: "We're at the building with the purple door."

Are buildings being torn down and replaced with newer ones in Ocala?

Such a good composition, Jacob!

Leif Hagen said...

Are you one of the gun slingers at the Saloon, Jacob?!

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - Oh, my dear man! I know you're from MinneeSota but still you should know the difference between a salon and a saloon. A salon only sells beer. But they'll dye it different colors for you.

Jacob said...

@ Vogon Poet - I don't know nuttin'...but look at those bricks! Don't they look like they're going to crumble into sand any moment?

Jacob said...

@ Tapirgal - Aha! That's why you like the Cedar Key colors -- they inspire you to paint! What do you paint? Landscapes? Buildings? Animals? People? Do you sell your paintings in your shop?

I like it very much. The old bricks and the bright new paint in modern colors blends together nicely to make a statement.

They do look a bit sandy, I thought that was one of your effects! I like the colours very much, it's old, it's cool!

Tricia said...

I like the lines and colors in this shot. They definitly freshened up that vintaga building.

Birdman said...

Yes, wonderful colors here.

Frank said...

Some of my all-time favorite colors. Even a bit of Santa Fe, NM in there. But the brick is what make this place and your shot.

NICE!!

As long as they don't dye my hair in those colors, this looks like a lovely salon to go to.

I love coming across colorful places like this.
