“If, while watching the sun set on a used-car lot in Los Angeles, you are struck by the parallels between this image and the inevitable fate of humanity, do not, under any circumstances, write it down.”

TIME:  6:31 PM
PLACE:  Lebanon Ave. 
SUBJECT:  Used car lot sign

As I’m driving to my dad’s tonight (we were going to ride together to our final family reunion meeting). I realized I had no picture…again.  I passed this sign on the way and turned around and snapped away.  There, done and done.  This sign is from a used car lot that is located right by the ice cream place I photographed on April 25th.

Fun colorful sign, and even better narrative. :D Great job.

This sign looks so old fashioned to me. Really cool! Sometimes, the neatest photos come from a quick click of the shutter button at the last minute!
