City Rooster

Rooster Overlooks Downtown.jpg

I was driving by downtown one evening and this chicken sitting high up caught my eye. I managed to find a to get a closer look. Along side the chicken, which looks more like a rooster crowing, also sits some green grapes and a fish which is in shadow. The display seems rather odd, but as I recalled this garage ornament is reflective of a previous Whole Foods location. One that existed at this address prior to opening their flagship headquarters store across the street in downtown Austin, Texas.

I would like to go back in the future and do some night shots once a couple of the buildings under construction are completed. Hopefully, this spot will still be available when the time comes. The downtown landscape continues to change and grow mostly with high rise condos, and apartments. Perhaps, this empty parking garage will one day too become residential space? Time will tell.
