Another mannequin shot, this time with my Olympus rangefinder. This was a tricky shot to time. The lights and lettering were constantly changing and with my film camera I had one shot. Did not want to waste too much film on this. I watched the scene for a while to see the patterns and clicked when I saw what I wanted.
