Try GEM Dog Food

This is almost certainly a faux sign created for atmosphere. I can find no mention of a real product called GEM dog food. And no self-respecting cat owner would feed her darling DOG food, YUK!

SONY SLT-A77V 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 1600 52 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

An excellent 'find' to shoot. It is interesting that someone went to the trouble of creating such a sign.

Yes, there is a hint ghosting-the-ghost here . . but it is very well done.

@Ronnie 2¢: "ghosting the ghost" is not an American idiom, but I sense it means something like faking something old or unsubstantial.
