A couple of classic Eureka establishments on a weekday afternoon

I took this photograph last month during the afternoon. I seldom photograph in town at that time of the day, but I was there and I had my gear and the opportunity. One of the reasons I seldom do my Eureka and Arcata project work during the day is because of the parked cars and foot traffic. Photographers like Vivian Maier did/do their best work when people are involved in the composition, but not so for me.

This photograph is one that I almost rejected when I was reviewing and downloading that day's photographs. I did follow my rule of letting the images "steep" for awhile. Now that I returned to it, I find that it works for me.
