The Provo River Bottoms shopping center is under construction right now while new cobble stone roads are put in place and what was once a through fair for cars will be a pedestrian only shopping area. I’m really happy about this change. It will be a much more inviting place once complete.
A few days ago, I was returning from an evening hiking at Sundance Ski Resort and stopped by to see how the construction is coming along. One cool thing is that Tucano’s restaurant has free WIFI and it’s open even when they’re closed. As I was walking around, I passed by a bench and noticed that I was in range of the WIFI signal. It also probably helped that there was hardly anyone around using the WIFI. The streets were completely abandoned as a result of most stores either closing early or completely during the construction.
As I sat down, I looked across the street at the lighted window in the Victoria’s Secret store. The lighting from the window and street light reflecting from the newly laid cobble stones created such a cool effect combined with the empty street. I snapped one picture with my iPhone and this is what I got. Conversion to B&W and post processing done in Adobe Lightroom 3.
