South Ashland is a target-rich environment for the wandering urban photographer. I am looking forward to spending some time there as the weather warms up. For now, here's a fast shot of a real shocker, a sign that basically is the entire facade of a building:
Oh, to have seen this fully lit up at night! The heart bleeds. The store is long closed, and the building is for sale -- an ill omen for the remnants of that magnificent sign.
Edit: I got the name and the location of this place wrong. They're both corrected now.
