Pierce Street

Signs at night

44th and Pierce

I moved into the house on the corner when I was in the second grade and lived there until college. My parents still live here.
This picture was taken at night with a flash. The black back ground has not been altered
This is interesting since the street sign sits atop a stop sign which is completely inapparent, leaving the street sign floating in the air.
