I've got loads of racing shots from this same vantage point (the pedestrian bridge over the main straight at Road America), and most of them highlight my terrible panning technique. The best way to save them, I think, is to make them look like vintage prints taken on old cheap cameras.

I'm pretty sure we've visited Central Camera's classic vintage sign, but it's such a nice one it's worth revisiting. I took this one just last October, and it was such a grab shot that it's turned out far nicer than it had any business being. I don't often go for selective color, but in this instance I think it worked out very nicely.

Anyway, I was driving around and saw this stand of trees just off the road. It's a road I've driven down hundreds of times, as it's close to work, and I'd never really paid much attention to the trees and surroundings - mostly it's new buildings tied in to a shopping center and hospital complex. But on a deeply foggy afternoon, they just floated out of the mist. I pulled a sharp Uey and parked illegally just to get this shot - pretty minor in the grand scheme of photographic things.

Anyway, this excellent neon sign is for a long-standing furniture store in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Baraboo is a neat town in itself, with a charming downtown and an wonderful vintage movie theater. But this beauty was a complete surprise to me. I imagine it dates from the late fifties, maybe the early sixties.

Tivoli Theater before. It's a nice old building, but it's marquee is kind of hard to shoot. It's only one-sided, and sticks out at a weird angle from the building. Plus you have to stand in the middle of the street to get a clear shot at it. Fortunately, even on a Saturday night, traffic's fairly light.

I have plenty of shots like this but haven't really ever published them. I'm starting to realize what I missed.
Taken in Elgin, IL, in december of 2013.
