Easily my favourite of yours so far!
I love that ad - it looks like it's been there since the 50s. And the little cage for the air conditioner reminds me of Israel - it's the only way they won't get stolen. The shadow it makes is gorgeous, and the surreality of the woman in the ad - a human presence who isn't really a human presence.

Au risque de me répéter, joli N&B !

Great shot Grant. I wanted to get this sign when I was there but there was a big truck parked in front of it.

@Chris Parr: i hope town topic appreciates all the publicity - we should be on the payroll :-)
delicious indeed, a classic for sure!!! :) hello mate!! hope all is well in your neck of the woods! just got up, see that it is cold and rainy here after 3 beautiful days of sun. luckily i don't have to leave the house or go to work... at least not quite yet. i am trying to enjoy the last bit of 'holiday' before life again retakes the reigns and my life returns to schedules and daily / weekly tasks... i just hope this time around i will have more free time and my work will be photography related!! will keep you posted! cheers!

@dj.tigersprout: enjoy your final days of leisure jaycee!
The straightness/parallelisms of the lines is amazing. I don't think it could have been drawn any better. Excellent capture.

There seem to be so many doubles in this image – the two poles, the two car posts, the lines of the ladder and the lines of the air conditioner cage and even the parallel parking lines. All those “doubles” create a strange unifying principle over all. They frame the sign and lead the eye to it. It is a very vibrant image, as vibrant as the lady in the Cola ad :} wonderful work...

Cool composition! Love that billboard and the ladder.

excelent old advertisement very well composed with the enviroment
3 Apr 2009 5:12pm
This is so cool. Is that sign really old or just vintage style?
3 Apr 2009 7:42pm
@Suzanne: i'm not sure, but i'd guess it's not really old.
I really like the lighting and love the composition, that you can see down the road on the left of the image is very cool.

I have heard very good things about Town Topic hamburgers Grant. Haven't tried them yet. I love this capture. Makes me think of the 60's!

I'm particularly drawn to the repeating poles, and they way their rigidity contrasts and frames the advertising image, one of lots of countours and roundness. I like this.

I like the nostalgic feel to this image, lots of detail, and the view along the road is a good touch.
Have a good weekend

i'm a sucker for old coca-cola signs so this has just got to be a favourite...i love it!!
6 Apr 2009 12:17pm
A classic, this shot is remarkable, with all its elements of light, shadows and bricks.

Looks to me like she was sipping the original Coca Cola brew.
