Red,White and Blue

I can never get enough of neon signs and marquees. Especially when the sign has been dark for many years and someone comes along and refurbishes a great theater like this.  This is the place where I saw Star Wars for the first time.  I was a senior in high school.  Do the math. In 1987, it closed down.  It had survived 50 years.  You can read more here.  A lot of businesses on the “avenue” closed down during that time and this small town in south jersey is very different from when I lived there.  But then again, what hasn’t!

In case you’re wondering, this was shot handheld with my old Canon G5 camera while I was resting against a lightpole.  I turned off the flash and just relaxed into the exposure.
