It’s 5:00pm on a Friday, it must be bar time! I took this shot while hanging out in the Mission District of San Francisco. I couldn’t resist these marquee letters. Weathered, rusty, and red, they are quite trendy to have as decoration in your living room these days! After taking a few shots, I got a little bummed out that I wouldn’t be able to see them light up– it was only 12:30 in the afternoon.
In comes the magic of photo post-production. With a few modifications, and using a very low-tech animation technique in Photoshop, I got my sign to light up. Now that it’s on, it’s time for a beer! Have a great weekend.
Note: This sign is from the Skylark Bar at 3091 16th Street, San Francisco.
