Today's Photo

The photo today is something that I have driven by twice a day ever since moving to Chino (so almost two years now), and have always thought it would be an interesting picture. Now I finally have my pictures of the rusty Drink Coca-Cola sign:

 

So what stopped me? The no-trespassing sign... but yesterday I couldn't help myself. I stopped in and took 4 shots before driving off, hopefully un-noticed. Two of them turned out decent.

I love those old vintage advertising signs. Around here all the barns were painted with tobacco ads sometime in the past. You can still see traces of the ads on some of the older barns.

Wonderful pictures! I just love those old Coke signs...and looking at them kind of gave me a Coke craving...hmmmm.

Mike - I wish we had more of them here. A couple of the buildings downtown have old painted business names on them, but most of them are hard to get a good vantage to photograph... Oh well.

Chickenbells - this subliminal advertising message was brought to you by the wonderful folks at Coke! :)

The black and white shot takes the cake. Great angle and clarity. I've always preferred black and white or sepia images. Very nice.

SOLB - glad you like them. I am finally starting to find my groove with the new camera and the new programs, so it is getting easier and easier.
