“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.”

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.
