Normal Sans Color

I've noticed that there is very little color in the webcam view of Uptown Normal. The only colors come from the sky (when it's blue), trees (in season), and the Normal Theater sign (when lit after dark). Otherwise, the buildings, street, sidewalk, and storefronts (as seen from the webcam) are all grayish. Even the vehicles don't have bright colors. Kind of blah looking. It's probably just the distance of the camera from the street that causes this. Or else the streetscape really is that blah. At least the new CVS Pharmacy will liven up the scenery with red signs!! Oh, I get it: red CVS signs to go with the ISU school color. Coincidence or clever strategizing?
