Pink Neon Time

Pink Neon TimeI took this photo of a neon-clad clock during a lunchtime stroll on an overcast day in 2003. It's one of my favorite photos, and proof that you don't need a fancy-schmantzy, gigapixel SLR to take a decent photo - I used my first digital camera, a Canon A40 Powershot with all of 2 megapixels.

Every time I see this photo, I here the 1967 song, Incense and Peppermints in my head. That song was a big hit, just around the time I started college, by Strawberry Alarm Clock, arguably the first psychadelic rock band. Being an engineering student, I was to busy to be psychadelic, but I always liked the song. And my neopsychodelic photo, Pink Neon Time just reminds me of Strawberry Alarm Clock.
