Built in 1926, the Monte Vista Hotelís sign dominates the skyline. It has been the symbol of Flagstaff for eighty years, and is said to be haunted. I photographed the sign from a distance, using a long 430mm focal length. The letters themselves seem to be ghostly; the neon tubes that illuminate the sign at night seem skeletal. I add still another level of symbolism by including the two flagstaffs that stand in nearby Heritage Square in my picture. They not only symbolize the country, but also echo the very name of the community.
