Every other Sunday I take my older kids to their high school youth group in Culver City and always pass by this theatre. I just noticed tonight that you can actually see this off the 10 freeway. Anyway, I’ve always been attracted to neon signs and this marquee has captivated me for quite sometime, so tonight, I decided to shoot it. I think a wide angle would have been a better selection in order to get closer, but I didn’t want to contend with distortion, etc. So I used my trusty 50mm f/1.2L, f/14, ISO 100 to extract the star burst from the street lights (not quite as prominent in this shot – but are clearly visible in other images that ‘didn’t make the cut tonight). As I approached the street corner – I had the bonus of capturing a man sleeping on the bus bench on the corner.
