Just a quick “hi” to let you know about a neat little gallery thingie in Los Angeles for all you fans of bowling buildings & signs. The opening was tonight and I toughed out the crazy rush hour weekend-getaway traffic to get my butt down there. I didn’t have my “real” camera with me — but I took a few photos with my phone. I lost my iPhone a couple of weeks ago and I don’t know how to use this new hotshot Samsung phone. But I did what I could — after a glass of wine which lowered my techie capabilities even further.
I didn’t write down the facts of where things came from — so consider this as just “flavor” of the event and show:

Here are the details about the show if you’re interested or think you can make it. It runs through May 11:
I’ll be back blogging next weekend with some L.A. area shooting.
