"The virtue of a camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking."

Vintage Glow

I love old neon signs. Love 'em. I would love to shoot a series of old neon signs from the area and make something out of them, maybe a coffee table book or calendar or collage piece or something. But, I got busy, and I haven't been out to shoot any in a few months. I took this photo on an August '10 night, just after I purchased my beloved long lens, and I got a few strange looks from passers-by while I was standing in the parking lot of the restaurant in full view of Old Hwy 50. I have a couple of other signs in mind, I just need a good, clear night to shoot when it isn't 21 degrees outside. And some free time would be nice. Maybe in the spring I will get back into this project.
Do you know of any cool neon signs in the area that I should check out, after dark?
