Leica M6 grunge sign

Taken with my Leica M6 long before grunge photography was popular. Love the bent sign pole and the distressed stop sign. Notice the the scratches below the word "ONE" that follow the downward curve of the sign. Like the very graphic nature of the image. The background was perfect for B&W. The film is Ilford Delta 400. I processed and printed this as a large print and I like the look of the image. Just a half block away is one of the busiest streets in Santa Monica and it was deserted. Scanning this negative was not as easy as I thought it would be. Lots of tweaking of the settings. I like the end result. Close to the final print.
