Your Lucky Day

I found this sign at a Resort Hotel in Tucson. They have reserved parking spots for their Employee of The Month awards and then they have one extra that is open to whoever arrives first. It is in the shade and that is very important in the summer in this area! As photographers it is sometimes amazing what meaningless items that we find interesting to shoot!
Canon 70-200L IS at 200mm. Late afternoon, ISO 400, 1/160th @ f5.6, EC 0 (MT)
