One of my personal photographic projects is documenting neon signs, Especially working signs. I have over one hundred sign images from around Oklahoma (and a few from other states). These include old classics and new artful creations. I have stumbled across these signs during travel for freelance writing and photography projects. But, if I don't see them, I can't make an image. So, if you have a sign in your area, or know of one somewhere, drop me an email and let me know about it. The old classics are disappearing way too fast! I would appreciate any tips or leads you can give me. Contact me with directions or addresses. Thanks
