In the spring of 2000, I drove around Houston, TX taking pictures of space-named businesses, signs, street names, you name it — I think I was aiming to make a collage, but it never happened, and a lot of the pictures (taken on my 35mm) weren’t really large enough or sharp enough to do much with. (I’d love to go back and try again, digital!) In any case, I have to admit, I never found anything as spectacular as this sign, captured as a Lomo print!
A dramatic and fun 8″ x 8″ Matte Photo Print of my lomo lc-a photo “Apollo Liquors” featuring a space age vernacular sign on the streets of the Austin, Minnesota!
I shot this colorful photo using my Lomo LC-A Camera and Kodak Ektachrome e100g film, then cross-processed it for this dramatic color and light effect! This is not a product of Photoshop; the results come from the magic of darkroom cross-processing and the beautiful Lomo camera!
This is a great sign, a fantastic photo, and a fairly accurate rendition of an Apollo Command & Service Module combo. I don’t know what Apollo has to do with liquor, but there you go.
