    Hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas Eve. My presents are wrapped and under the tree, the kitty's stocking is hung by the chimney with care, and I'm downstairs fooling around with my camera and a new "neon" sign I just received. Life is good....

    Thank-you so much guys! The sign is from Microstructures at They have an experimenter's kit if you want to make your own signs and they also have some animated signs with chase patterns. Very cool stuff.
    Merry Christmas to all!!!

    :D Val

    Great night shot...what a feeling...did you use the experment kit or one of the rtr units. Can we see a closeup.

    Satokuma, it's actually a pre-production sample. I'm doing some work with them, designing graphics for some new sign kits. Right now though, you can purchase the EL experimenter's kit and using a printer on acetate design anything you want. It's very easy to work with, and soooooo cool!
    No close ups today - my camera is packed up for a trip to Vancouver - the airport taxi arrives in an hour!
    See you all later! Merry Christmas!

    :D Val

    Great shot, spitfire! I love a well-constructed urban scene. Looks like it could be in Houston! Or pretty much any other large North American city... :)

    Very nice Val. So now you are in Vancouver. I am just an hour away up river in Mission spending the holiday season with my son and his family. We spent boxing day with friends in North Vancouver. What a great view from there. See you back in Ontario in te new year.

    Great Scene!

    Val, your work is awe-inspiring. One thing I would love to be able to do is create super-realistic urban scenes. You sure can. :) Very nicely done.

    Ralph's for fun!

    Love the night scene! Have you ever seen the movie "A Christmas Story" about the little boy (named Ralph!) who wants a BB gun for Christmas? Your pic reminds me a lot of the downtown shots of the town in Indiana where his family goes to see the holiday parade at night! Cool!

    Going off topic here, but you reminded me of times long gone. The "Christmas Story", is an autobiographical tale, by humorist Jean Shepard. I remember listening to his radio show on WOR, New York, back around 1960.
