The Weekend in Black and White: Downtown Durham NC lunch break walk

I like the contrast between the weathered bricks and the contemporary sign.

In addition to indoor seating this restaurant also has tables in the courtyard. I haven't eaten there and didn't even know about the restaurant but I was going on a walk during a lunch break and it caught my eye for photographs. It's in the historic warehouse district in Durham, NC, USA. The company I work for converted several buildings in this district for offices and it's interesting to see other uses that these buildings have been put to.

 Below is a color version of the shot above.  I've been having to work in Durham more lately. I live in Raleigh and my house is 32 miles from the Durham office so not too far but I've been able to work primarily from home until recently so it is an adjustment. For the past few months my new schedule is working in the office 3 days a week and from home on Friday and Monday. I have enjoyed having some different photo ops and this week has been cool enough to walk during lunch.
