Sign painters

06 July 10

Completely smitten with the Sign Painters project Jay B Sauceda, a match made in heaven of photography and typography.

Have you seen the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program? I think you’ll love them as your post reminded me of them.

Nice, I think the very faded third one down is my favourite. Congrats on the 1000 posts!

Glad you dig my work! It’s labor of love. I love type!

I hate to see these paintings fade away, but their quality is half of their charm!

I love photography blogs. That lawn chair photo is just something amazing. I wish i could shoot like that with my D40. I mean you captured some great stuff. Did you use a UV filter for that shot?
