LeMay Auto Parts Ghost Sign (2018-09-07 13-20-53a)

Chicago has quite a few ghost sings – old signs painted right on to the building or made to be a part of the design on the building. I happened to be driving by this one the other day when, because of a well-timed stop light,I was able to grab a photo of it.

The storefront is located at 2435 North Halsted Street in Chicago, Illinois (Lake View). The building was supposed to be converted into a restaurant but is currently serving as the base of operations for road repair in the area. The company still operates in Chicago although, obviously, at a different location.

The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. I used ACDSee Ultimate 2018 to do the post-processing. I had to rotate the image a bit and crop it some. (I didn’t have much time to be careful when I took the photo.) I adjusted the lighting, the white balance, the levels and the tone curve. I raised the contrast, clarity and saturation.
