One of the best examples of neon in Coronado is this amazing sign on the Villa Capri Motel, opposite the legendary Hotel del Coronado on Orange Avenue. I’m told they don’t light it up at night anymore, so I feel lucky to have gotten this shot a few years back, taken—I think—when I walked up to the Hotel del to view their Christmas decorations. There’s not a lot of neon in Coronado, other than some bar or restaurant signs, and they always evoke a kind of timeless feeling in me, like I’m back in a different era. Maybe i just regard neon as a splash of color in a film noir world … I don’t know.
