Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign…

Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign
– Five Man Electrical Band

I went out photographing with friends John Prouty and Juan Garcia early Sunday morning on October 31. I had a few places I wanted to photograph before they disappear, as things tend to do after I photograph them.

We started out on McDowell Rd. just west of Rt. 51. I had been wanting to photograph this sign for some time as we are bombarded by "Gold" commercials on TV these days.

After I made the exposure on my 4x5 I looked a few feet away and saw this chain link fence with lock and chain.

After these two I drove down the road a block or two and got this image I had also been wanting to photograph. Three images in 30 minutes… not bad.

A few more blocks west was this building that John had been wanting to photograph. John used his 8x10 while I used my 4x5.

After that we went downtown and found a few more things before calling it a day.

This was the first day out photographing after a long hot summer and it felt good to just get out and have some fun. Coming soon, some 4x5 images made at City Center in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving week.
