A while ago I spent time taking a bunch of photos of neon signs which usually left me in the photo. Most of them I processed to remove me and heighten the colors of the neon. So here you can tell everything is reflected by the background signs. Does that mean I’m also in reverse mode?
Not knowing where I’m going is okay, I just wish I was on the way 🙂
Without the other signs adorning this store on East Beach in White Rock, you might be unable to guess the service it provides from the front door. Seems to me it would have made an excellent image for an medieval, apothecary shop specializing in bloodletting.
Someone put artistry into constructing this sign instead of just relying on static neon letters. Too bad this wasn’t a GIF, then the dancing, animated flames would show up.
Since we had to go into town yesterday (Vancouver), it gave me the opportunity to get another neon sign picture for my personal one a day photo challenge for February. Despite the drift away from the old time large installations, there are still quite a few small neons (not counting the ubiquitous ‘Open’ ones) hanging in retail windows. This restaurant has been on the corner of Broadway and Cambie for quite a few years, but I never have partaken of the food. Not sure why not. Maybe because you have to run back and forth to have your meal cooked at a central grill which makes me think I have to do all the work and still pay out money – a concept I can’t grasp. I usually take shots of any murals I run across, so this was a double hit and rather unusual having the combination. Nice to have the mural along with the neon and not to have to deal with storefront glass reflections.
