Rex Simpson

Looked up and found this wonderful old advertisement on the side of a building in the middle of Sydney. I do love an old sign – takes you back to another era :))

Camera – Nikon D90
Lens 55-200mm

Converted to b/w using channel mixing and gradient maps. Some adjustments to levels and contrasts.

    Now all you need to do is whack a 1930s model on the wall.
    Great spotting, Trish, and PP. I love old signs too. B/W was a good choice… looks more like the era.

  • Thanks so very much carol, I think is the fonts that are part of the appeal in the old signage, thanks for the lovely feedback :)
