lisska ar



I pass this bar every morning on the way to work. The light is always on and I wonder if it is still open and who would be in the bar that late or that early? I'll bet that there are a lot of interesting stories about the patrons and their hijinks.

I also wonder what Lisska means? Is it a last name? Was the bar opened by an immigrant and this was his favorite pony's name growing up? Do the patrons all gather here to watch their favorite teams playing "football" back in the old country?

You never know with these things.

From a photographer's point of view, I like the B&W version of this image. However, I wish that the street light was not in the scene. I feel like it distracts from the LIsska AR sign. Notice that I stopped down the exposure by 1/3 of a stop to bring the glow from the sign under control.
