I love old signage and theater marquees. Océane Buret, a recent transport from Paris, has beautifully captured LA’s most historic and famous landmarks with just a point and shoot camera. Don’t you wish they still made them like they used to?

I hardly ever see these in the east coast! thanks for sharing!
I love the sense of nostalgia in these photos. The color of the sky in the second photo down is pretty incredible.
Beautiful pictures. Thank you for this inspiration.
I am a big fan of old signage as well, and these photos are absolutely great! Love.
I love these – they’re all over Los Angeles and it really evokes a sense of a different (more glamorous) time.
beautiful post! great climate!
I like these photos to much. Beautiful. xx
these pics so remind me of old american movies!
Love this montage!! Would be cool to see these around more often, but they’re a thing of the past. Makes them even more special.
old signs are the absolute best. the colors are fantastic

CBS News had a great story recently about 100th anniversary of neon signs and how they are dying out because of LED lighting. Kind of sad actually.
this is what I imaged when I thought of Hollywood : ) beautiful!
Love these fun vintage buildings. They’re classic, slightly outdated, simple and whimsical.
If you love old signage…head to the neon sign graveyard in Vegas. Photograph Heaven!

a collection of these would make an amazing wall collage! thanks for sharing
very cool. i love the tightly cropped concept.
these marquees strongly remind me of the movie 2046! going to watch it again on the weekend =)
So iconic! I love neon signs!
There is something so beautiful about them! Lovely~*
Love retro neon lighting! I actually just did my own post about it because i realized it was such a trend on Pinterest. Did you know there is a Retro Neon sign boneyard museum in Las Vegas? Would love to go.. Here’s the article http://messynessychic.com/2012/03/22/pinterest-trend-du-jour-retro-neon-lights/
