What a GREAT billboard! I've never seen it before and it seems to fit in with the rest of the advertising on the structure.

As to the smell of the drugstore, I can imagine something like old aftershave, tobacco, and a little window cleaner mixed in. I guess what I meant by the comment initially is that you've done such a good job of creating a believable place that in my mind I can easily imagine what it would be like to step into the place.

There must be a reason you are not happy with the sign Bob. I wonder if it is too comedic to fit the theme of the build'..???

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!

Thanks for your comments Galen, Pete, Rich, and Ted.

The billboard itself is not what bothered me, I love that billboard, I've saved it for years, it
was just that I had a certain feeling about the drugstore itself and I was not sure a
billboard of any kind looked right. I'm more at ease with it now.

I very much like the billboard. To me it transforms the drugstore to an urban establishment. I now picture it with tall buildings all around.

In the first attempt to light the billboard the light was so strong it washed out the board. I
have cut it down to this and will most likely tone it down a bit more, will have to play with
it. My poor photography adds to the problem. I want to see what it looks like when it's really dark first.

That's the problem I was having with my grocery lighting, Bob. I had to turn it way down, to where it looked too dim in real life, because the camera tends to intensify it. And even worse in the dark.

Bob, if it is possible on your camera to close down the lens, and or, shoot on (A) Aperture priority, or on the back lighted setting, you will avoid that wash out'...

Terrell. I think I have it where it will stay now, the whole billboard lights up nicely with
no harsh glare when seen with your EYES. The camera still sees it a bit differently.

Ted, I just don't seem to have the aptitude for photography.

Since I couldn't get out in natural light today I took this quick flash shot. I see there's a
big orange cat stre-e-etching out in the window but I think Ill shoo him away.
The entire structure has a wash of grime on it.



Bob

Bob, I love the cat stretching out in the window.
The whole store looks wonderful!
Happy New Year! To you and your wife, I hope 2019 will be a good one for you both!

Love the structure and the cat! I'd keep the cat, if for no other reason than to annoy the health inspectors.
