i like these images a lot. "survival" is such a great shot. i'm still trying to get how "obsolescnece" ties in with the rest, but i love it on its own.

Most of the ghost signs in the downtown area are related to industries that have pretty much died out in this city, so really, there are a few different ways to approach this image from the central theme. What I liked most is that the the surviving text of the sign that predicts its own end. The product, the industry, the sign, the style of marketing, even the architecture have become superfluous, replaced by that which is newer/faster/smarter... as had been promised.

i see, so it's redundant because the sign touting progress has itself been rendered obsolete. ironic even.

It's one idea. ^_^
