Sun-Lake Neon Relit!

For the last couple years (at least), every time I’ve passed the Sun-Lake Pharmacy’s neon at night it’s been off and I grumble to myself about what a shame it is that it’s not blazing bright on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Parkman in my section of Silver Lake.

See, I’m one of those who thinks it should be a fineable offense to neglect neon signs.

Anyway, I’m not sure the occasion, but biking home tonight from work I was pleasantly amazed to see it shining in all its glory, and so of course I stopped, busted out the cam and snapped me a shot for posterity.

The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
