Photo Reflection of the Day #222: The Bowl-O-Mat

What Is It

The sign at the Beverly Bowl-O-Mat.

Why It's today's Pick

I walk by this sign pretty often.  I appreciate its oldness.  It speaks to a sign of the 1970s or 1980s.  Enough neon to tell you that it's from a certain time and place where this would have been a call for the hip.  Now, it speaks to a sense of past, a sense of artifact.  The entirely black sky behind the sign does seem a bit scary though that is more having to do with being in a city, than it does imply that the stars have all but disappeared.
