It's Better Out Here
by *panfah on deviantART

Continuing my obsession with neon signs. This classic Arby's sign fascinates me, and I actually wouldn't mind going back to shoot it again so I could have some fun with the wholly intact neon on the other side.

There's another one of these awesome signs on Grand Avenue in Franklin Park. Between the two signs, they may even have a full complement of lights.

You're going to have to show me! I saw the "Low Cost Liquors" or whatever it was off Montrose when we were heading to your place on Sunday, but I didn't know if the sign worked and how the neighborhood was after dark...

Fantastic! I should start collecting these Arby's signs... and I want to see what you can steer me towards!

Good job getting neon while its STILL.

Arby's = BLARGH

Oh.. while I'm thinking of it. Am told there's a "neon graveyard" in Las Vegas. Haven't a CLUE what that is, but I think we're planning to visit it during my Vegas birthday trip next month. Will attempt pictures.

I'm not sure what you mean by the neon being "still," wanna clarify that for a cat who hasn't had enough coffee this morning?

I've heard of the "Neon Boneyard," and they have tours and such that I'd love to take -- bring your camera, let me know what you think of it! I'd love to see it not because of my neon sign fascination (I'm more about photographing the signs when they're lit up at night) but because it seems like an amazing example of ruin and decay, which is another one of my photographic/personal fascinations.

"I'm so hungry I could eat at Arby's!"

I hadn't even thought of that quote when I was shooting this -- probably for the best, I would have been laughing too hard to keep a steady hand. Bonus points to you!

I realize this is a weird thing to say, but. . . I really miss that old "It's Better Out Here" campaign. Maybe because they replaced it with a tacky talking oven mitt.
