Neon Nights

neon.jpg

From site:

New York has a marvelous collection of neon signs, and while we’ve heretofore collected scads of them on previous Signs pages we’ve never previously done a Neon Nights page, when the signs are doing what they were born to do. Your webmaster’s Canon Powershot S1 IS is ill-equipped for night photography. That’s why you call in the pros, like Forgotten Fan Steve Garza, who uses a Canon 20D w/ 80-200mm f4.

Bound For Glory: America in Color

Bound For Glory is an exhibition by the Library of Congress.From website:
"Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information. These vivid scenes and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations, the nation’s subsequent economic recovery and industrial growth, and the country’s great mobilization for World War II."
It is simply unbelievable. The above photo, by Marion Post Wolcott, was taken in Louisiana in August of 1940.
Check it out.
