sunday drive: neon by night

Okay, it's a Sunday Night drive this time, and a familiar one at that, because we're going back to that same stretch of Sepulveda and checking out the same signage, this time after dark. The signs are not all in perfect condition, and the illumination pattern creates a texture that I find interesting. The Cinema, the Astro, the Half Moon, they all take on a bit of a Film Noir look in their slightly impaired light show.

Ladies and Gentlemen, here's Neon by Night:

I love the "Johnnies" sign. There is an artistry in neon that can't be matched by the new plastic signs.
