Photographer's Note

I was on the top of the parking garage adjacent to the Ikea store in Emeryville on a blustery winter's day when I took this shot. I'd been enjoying photographing the customers who arrived, including the mother and child eating an ice cream cone I posted in an image I called Crosswalk.

I noticed the sea of shopping carts lined up against the bright blue wall and realized that I had to take at least one photo of the collection. I came across the image yesterday when I was considering what I might post on the board. I've been practicing with my new Canon 20D, but most of the shooting I've been doing has been at social events where many of the folks whose photos I've taken have been friends. So instead of new photos you get a chance to see some old ones. Folks seemed to enjoy the blue and red containers, so I thought another graphical image might be in order.

If you look closely you'll notice one of Ikea's distinctive yellow shopping bags left in a cart. You'll also note the reflection in the standing water at the bottom of the image. Fortunately I was sheltered from the falling rain by the garage structure. It was the kind of day most photographers stay inside... ;-)
