This is a quickie post since it was a day short on shooting. The Neon Symposium fell pretty much in the middle of the day and I wanted to allow plenty of time to find parking to have the dogs nearby. This was my first real foray into public speaking as well other than the presentations I do at work. I brought lots of facts & photos & was, of course, very organized. But so as to not screw up and get the most info in, I pretty much read the whole thing. Maybe I’ll be more relaxed next time. It went well and I met a ton of very nice people (and I don’t like people!). The other presentations were all completely fascinating and inspiring as well. You gotta GO next year!
Anyhow — let’s start with this nice pair in Oakland. They appear to be recent replicas:
And now on to San Francisco. Too bad about the protective, plastic box:
For the rusty/crusty fans:
This guy is inside Miller’s East Coast Deli on Polk. Sorry about the lights: the sign is on top of shelf & difficult to shoot:
And lastly — I never get to shoot this wonderful plastic sign at the right time of day. Always tree shadows. I’m a little worried that it might disappear. Note the deteriorating, rusting bottom panel which might tear away at some point soon:
One more day & post to go. Lots of nice photos from today over at my Flickr account:
