    Ancient neon sign advertising a non-existant subdivision. Literally "in the middle of nowhere" along the northern reaches of So Cal's high desert Antelope Valley.

    Is this too big?

    Night, full moon, sodium vapor lamp, 1 minute exposure, available light only.

      Great shot, in both the technical and artistic sense. Flawlessly composed and exposed, but also expressing perfectly the nostalgia we have for unattractive and yet much loved things long gone.

      Another cracking set of images, I've not been keeping up with your prodigious output recently. We still haven't done our print swap yet!
