The Lope: Shadow Cross

Shadow Cross

Happy Good Friday to you all. I shot this in about 1980 along 15th Street in Joplin, Missouri. A google street view shows the front of the building - the Friendship Baptist Church - has changed drastically. The front doors are different, the window has been filled in, the porch railings replaced and an awning added. Most of all though, the cross sign has been removed so there's nothing to cast a shadow.

I regret that I did not shoot a separate photo of the sign; I think it may have been neon. I imagine such things seemed more commonplace to me then, as indeed they were.
