A Sign From Past Times

Wow....it has been a L O N G time since I have submitted a retro signage shot, to damn long in my opinion.



Well this sure caught me by surprise! I didn’t think original signs like this still existed, well, in Georgetown, Colorado they apparently still do! Needless to say, I had to get a few shots. Processed using LucisArt.
Thoughts welcomed print to come

This makes me think of "Sign of the Times" by Prince. I love these old signs, there are still a few left on the older side of my town (also in CO). The landscape in this shot looks a lot like Ouray.
