Pic of the day #24 – Mar 27, 2010

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.
