A few minutes too late...

This sign belongs to the oldest still-operating McDonald’s restaurant, located in Downey, CA. I think I’ve kind of become numbed to just how impressive this thing is after living next to it for so many years. It’s too bad it’s been a while since everything on the sign worked properly.

I showed up to do this “magic hour” shot about 10 minutes too late. I wanted to get better balance between the neon lights and the sky light so that the neon wouldn’t be so blown out overexposed. And it would have been nice to have retained some detail in the moon up there instead of having it turn into a burned out white spot. Just a couple of minutes makes all the difference! Oh well. It wasn’t exactly the most amazing sunset today anyway. I’ll try again a different day.

Norwalk, California

Another picture of an old neon sign in the suburban sprawl of southeastern L.A. county. Pretty soon I’ll have a pretty good collection of these.

Umami Burger + Film Screening

So tonight I went to an outdoor screening of two short films, one of which happened to be the first public screening of “Middle of Nowhere” which I shot with director and old classmate Michael CarreƱo almost a year ago. And it happened to take place at Space 15 Twenty adjacent to Umami Burger right across from the good old L.A. Film School.

This was the tastiest burger I’ve ever eaten in my life, and that is saying a lot considering how many hamburgers I’ve eaten in my life (what can I say, burgers are my favorite food!) — I highly recommend it to all burger connoisseurs.

It was great to reconnect with all the actors and crew and also the space — I hadn’t actually been to Space 15 Twenty since it was just a bunch of old run down warehouses where we shot a lot of After Midnight. Back then it was dirty and full of homeless poo… now it’s full of hipsters, haha.
