This is a street corner that no longer exists here in St. Louis.  If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember that I love including signs in my city scenes.  Don't automatically eliminate signs.  They can provide interest and texture.  Also the lacy quality of the scaffolding appealed to me.

Once again I was working with the secondary triad:  purple, green, and orange.  Most of them are grayed down so that the brighter colors around the focal point can stand out.  Sometimes it's good to have a color idea and know how to employ it when you are dealing with an essentially colorless subject.
