Seven Star Astoria

Seven Star Astoria

An old hotel sign in Vancouver provides a likely entry for this week's Shadow Shot Sunday pool. See if these people don't agree.

And for a color version (from a different angle) of this sign, go here.

gorgeous - it all looks so marvellously retro...

U suspect the shadows in this photo show up better in black and white than they do in color. NEAT trip back in time.

Oh, but I agree. Lovely shot!

What a great look! I feel, at least in my imagination, that I may be in a cool city prior to 1950 - the B&W seems to take me there. Neon is awesome! The shadow is massive, but keeping in character with the classy older days!
