Reading Vivian Maier

- A kid behind the window in what seems like his home with the sign outside saying to leave their gun if they carry one,  because harming others will make everyone else feel sore
- This photo kind of remind me of todays security and how much it advanced in the last several decades
- Looking closely at this picture, the possible surroundings could be quiet, possibly somewhere out in the country
- What makes this photo stand out has gotta be both the sign and the kid watching out the window

- A maintenance worker for possibly the city working on the neon signs outside a bowling alley and a beauty saloon outside of New York
- What's different about this particular image (for me) is that a lot of people don't really see neon signs like this anymore
- What seems to me even though its a black and white image, the colors look vivid and kinda bright,
-  The first time I saw this picture, I only saw the sanford bowling ally sign, then kinda followed the small arrows by the sign that a few people will see, then follow the lines from the bottom to top of the ladder
