This little building has been a near daily landmark of my trips downtown
since I moved here. No matter the color scheme, it has always been John's Fish,
a neighborhood business that has catered to the people of Haughville
for well over thirty-five years. Some years, it has been painted white,
others dark red, with another incarnation of daffodil yellow.
The lighted sign over the front door shows a painted catfish and lobster
to mark its business. The little wing above is a part of the small
complex, but I have no idea what goes on there.
But I do like the dark red door against the beautiful blues
on the walls. The bright, sunny day with a clear sky
seemed just the right time to catch the building's
pallet at its springtime best.
