the sign of a Hotel in downtown Vancouver takes one on a time travel to the 60ties.
The Burrard is a small boutique hotel that albeit the 60ties decor has all the modern amenities needed and is quite centrally located.

Daniel, I really love the way the signs appear to hang in space against the totally black background. There really doesn't need to be a building there at all...Thanks.

I was prepared to comment on your previous photo, and then I saw this latest and just couldn't pass up the opportunity. You hit the nail on the head, the 60's is the first thing I thought of when I saw this, the neon lights are a quick connection to the era for sure. Love what you've done here, the stripped down nature of this really makes it jump off the page.
Great approach to this shot, keeping it simple and letting the neon glow take over the show. :) It's always good to see this type of subject displayed from somewhere other than Vegas...although justly so for that locale. This has a wonderful retro feel to it, very well done indeed! Have a great weekend. Take care.

hello Daniel, this time the photo from Vancouver is in Craig's style. Superb view of the old sign. Like from the old movies, as Sting. Looks great against the dark sky.

The beauty in this shot is its simplicity with just the neon sign lit up against the black background.nice presentation,well spotted.

The neon looks superb against the inky blackness like this, and really makes your shot stand out. I know that many people hate neon, saying its tacky and classless, but I have to admit to an affinity to it when its in the right places. We see very little neon in Ireland, so I guess its a rare enough site for me, perhaps the reason I like it so, but either way, this crystal clear shot is great.
All the best

I guess this could be called a minimalistic composition. The yellow and green lines and letters on a pitch black background is quite original and very catchy. I like this very much.

I really like this night photo with vibrant colours and elegant blue background. Next time I go to Vancouver I'll know where to book! :)

Just back from my month in Europe and I miss it already. I really like this photo, it's very unusual and artistic. I love the stark colours and lights, the contrasting black is very effective.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
