Neon Nights

I admit that this one will not be to everyones tastes but I do periodically take pictures for myself.  I was walking in Baltimore and saw this lady flash out of the corner of my eye.  I had all of 5 seconds to get this shot framed in the neon on a point and shoot camera.  It was point and pray time that the image came out and I got lucky.  I just love how the neon silhouettes her and I just cranked the black to make the colors pop more.  It’s not often I take an image for myself but this one is for me.

Double bonus points if you get the Black Sabbath reference (RIP Ronnie James Dio).

I like the picture. Neon lights with their dazzling colors are an old art form, I think. They have been around for years. The lady seems to be as tall as the top of the signs which are usually above a window front. Is it a trick of the camera to make her appear that way or the angle you shot from?
