No one should be at Ikea just as they open, just as no one should be going to Ikea to eat breakfast. The upside? A very colorful building with no cars to clutter your composition. I liked the handicap signs against the blue building so I grabbed this shot.

BTW, did you know that you can get their Swedish meatballs for breakfast? You can even get 5 additional ones added to your meal for only a dollar...CRAZY

    ah, nicely done! magnificent composition...the blue becomes a major character player in this image...set off nicely by the oddly ascending stairs. love the lines, how they dissect the image...

    love it, darlene. that cornflower blue color is pretty rare in urban scenes, it's such a tranquil color that it gives the photo an unexpected mood. really great.

    I think I would have been tempted to leave a little more room at the bottom, but I love this shot. Interesting and well captured.

    that place looks so sterile you probably couldn't even catch gravity there.

    I'm a big fan of finding those linear patterns and colour schemes that seem to be art unto themselves...I love this blue assemblage of surfaces marked with a white exclamation mark of stairs.
