You get a bonus picture this week. The Goodman’s sign is one I’ve been meaning to take for a few weeks now, but I keep going right when the sun stops hitting the side of the building, making for a cruddy outcome. But there’s something really fun about taking pictures of all these old signs that you can still find in various cities, little remnants of downtowns years ago.
I ran into another photographer on March 12th when I was taking those pictures. My big camera makes it hard to be inconspicuous — a definite pro when it comes to camera phones — so every now and then folks will ask what I’m taking pictures for. It’s fun to have a chance to chit chat, talk about why I started this project, and get some ideas.
