Caffeinated in Roanoke

I took this photo back in Summer of 2010, not even sure if these signs are still there. I haven’t been back to Roanoke in the last 18 months. I hope its doing well and continue development of its downtown, as it was pretty lively back then.  Anyone driving south HW581 through Roanoke downtown will see these signs, obviously they are much cooler after dark. You can’t see on the photo, but the coffee pot is animated, with coffee pouring into the cap.

btw, to get fine details of the neon signs I used Photomatix selective deghosting for different parts of this photo.
