Just posting a few pictures from the Schrock Road area between Ambleside Drive and Sharon Woods Boulevard. All pics were taken the night of Dec. 18.

This is just a test photo using my parents HP Photosmart M517. For the last few months it simply did not work, and after tinkering with it for a few minutes I managed to get it back to good. Yes, it was late morning and yes it was snowing when I shot this simple neon picture.

Ten years ago, the area that is now Easton Towne Center was old used up farmland near I-270, Morse, and Stelzer Roads. Today it is a hustling, bustling, expensive little town, albeit..fake. Basically this place, along with the Polaris area a few miles north, killed the longtime local favorite Northland Mall. I have never warmed to the idea of a fake city in the middle of suburbia or even ruralia taking the place of a REAL downtown, which, in Columbus, is not doing so hot either, though it is going somewhat better than many other cities. I have been here a few times though because I do like some of their stores, and they DO do a good job decorating for the holidays. Nothing says Christmas to me like 50' trees with LED Christmas lights, $200 jeans, and of course, neon signs. It was kinda late to go inside the mall part of Easton, but I did take a few pics in the actual 'town center' as well as a few places not actually part of Easton but around it. All pics were taken the night of Monday, Dec. 10 with my JVC digital still function.

A short video clip of a couple motion neon signs, done a few weeks ago. I like the music I had on in the car when I did the "sizzle" one. I hope to get a chance to do a short neon photo tour later this week, possibly a smaller set like Reynoldsburg or Gahanna. Next week I am aiming for a start of the High Street corridor and downtown areas.
