Old Warehouses

Old Warehouses
There are a lot of old warehouses around Central Market.
Some of them were rebuilt and still are being in use, some of them became night clubs or even art galleries.
But some structures were never renovated and nowadays look like ruins of Ancient Rome.

Evening Market

Evening Market
Few hundreds meters from Riga Central Market, in the area of old warehouses, there is a real Latvian farmer's market.
It opens at sunset, and, I guess, works all night long. Here you can buy healthy products grown in Latvia.

Twilight

Riga at twilight
Riga at twilight, or technically at late sunset.
The moon and the sun could be often observed at the same time in Riga.
Interesting, if it is possible to take picture with both of them in the single frame not using special lens.

Burglars

House of Press is under attack
Don't panic! Nobody lives in this skyscraper. It is former Riga Press House.
For the last 5 years this building is in the queue for demolition, so I have no idea what these people are doing there. But for sure it is not a window cleaning team.

What they were doing in real? Check another photo of Press' building.
