Sure there are many of the typical red objects in Sioux Falls. Flowers, fire hydrants, red brick buildings and of course don't forget stop lights or signs. However, I prefer the unusual to the ordinary. After a long day of watching for unusual red I had pretty much given up.
Just after sunset I headed down town hoping to capture silhouettes of swing dancers at Fawick Park. When I got there though the park was empty. Either the event was canceled or maybe no one but me thought it was a fun idea. Not wanting to go home without having photographed something of interest, I headed for Philips Avenue to see if maybe there was something red in a shop window. To my dismay the only red in the shop windows were the Open or Closed signs. Just as I was about to give up I saw this sign. While it is not all that unusual it had appeal.
Then I remembered that in the next block the little retro style diner had red in their sign, so I headed over there and got these shots.
Once again lighting was a challenge and the red of the letters didn't show up very well. I do like the fact though that the red lights created a nice red glow on the front of the building.
Although I was not totally satisfied with meeting this prompt I thought I was done hunting for red when today I drove past this house and couldn't resist.
