sunday drive: palm springs new year

A New Year and time for an old friend to return- the Sunday Drive Photo Series. Photos today were taken on New Year's Day, on foot, in the deepwell section of South Palm Springs where many small hotels are interspersed with residential housing. There's also a generous representation of liquor stores- for the tourists? For the residents? Uncertain. Interesting.

Through the blur of alcohol, you'll notice a great selection of backlit plastic signage. What you won't see is neon- neon was outlawed in Palm Springs in the 50's- city fathers found it unsavory. So sit back and revel in highbrow backlit plastic, architectural details and a couple of extra elements I couldn't resist. Happy New Year from Palm Springs. Enjoy!
