Going underground


The Underground is a well-known venue inside the Drake Hotel on Queen West. It's quite quirky inside and I can imagine it would be fun to see a show there.




I couldn't decide if I liked the sign better in color or black and white, so I decided to post both. I'm sorry for my absence of late, but the new job and the long weekend kept me busier than I imagined. Hopefully I'll get back into a rythm with my blogging soon so there won't be any further lapses.

In the meantime, you can see more signs at Signs, Signs.

Jobs come first - one has to eat!

I like the colour version best, it shows the marbling to better effect. And I'm not a great B & W fan anyway.

RedPat said...

I think I like the colour best too although the B & W is quite striking. I can't decide!

Bob Crowe said...

I vote for the color. The B&W would be more dramatic if you cut down the highlights and increase contrast in a photo editor, IMHO.

Regina K said...

I am intrigued by this sign.

Randy said...

I like the b&w.

Luna Miranda said...

The B&W seems appropriate for the name of the place, but I love the shades of green in the first image.

I like the colour version better.

VioletSky said...

Another vote for the coloured version.

@all - thanks for all the feedback. I agree with many of you that it would have been a shame to lose the green, marbley effect, but I do have a penchant for b&w!

@Bob - I don't have any fancy software, just Picassa. I did try and up the contrast, but it made that flash spot stick out even more. But thank you for your opinion and insight. I love criticism/ideas! :)

I'm with the coloured vote Halcyon, it's the greens that did it, you can just sort of imagine green slime underground!

Lesley said...

The gold lettering on the green marble is a perfect combination.
and I know about jobs getting in the way of the fun stuff...!

Dianne said...

the green is beautiful, interesting pattern

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
