Commonwealth Ave.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of neon signs. The second I saw this neon light bulb mess on my way home one day I knew I had to photograph it in all it's glory.

Now sometimes the signs come to you and they cross your path in the course of your daily life... but most of the time you have to go find them, just like any other photograph you might ever want to take. Sometimes the beauty of photography is the exploration. It's all part of the fun.

Since arriving in Boston I have failed miserably at exploring. I've rarely found new things by searching, I've only stumbled upon them when running errands or other tasks. I've not seen the city. However I'm happy to report that for the next week or so this will no longer be the case. Next week is devoted to exploration, searching, finding, getting lost and finding some more. Next week is about seeing. Next week is about Boston.

Now let's hope the weather cooperates...

Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll be back as soon as possible with new found photographs.

- Stefanie

Go to Austin, TX or Omaha NE that's where I've seen the quirkiest neon signs.
