Night Shots

We Buy Gold

Well, I got a bit stuck again after a good run at posting but last night I went out and looked for some neon to shoot. I find it hard to get the right amount of color, light and contrast on these shots but came up with a few that were at least satisfactory.

Buy One

The largely Hispanic neighborhood west of my house is great for finding neon signs. It also made me crave tacos as there were a lot of tasty looking restaurants in the area. Unfortunately, last week I had a similar craving for Mexican food and found a little taqueria. One burrito, many chips, and 10 hours later, I came down with a nasty bout of food poisoning. Long story short, no tacos for me last night.

When we lived in San Antonio I would eat at every little hole in the wall taco joint I could find. I was very fortunate and never got hit, but my friends were not so lucky. I think it was ignorance that saved me. I just assumed if it was a restaurant then it had to be safe.
Love the photos. I like cities best at night. I love looking through the windows and glimpsing the people there. It's almost like browsing a living book.
