City Lights

I took this shot in San Francisco near Union Square. As it got dark I realized that the only subjects I had were the numerous lights and signs along the street.
I tried to frame the shot so that both the actual sign and it's reflection showed up. When I reviewed the photos I thought it was interesting how the light from the actual sign looks solid while in the reflection you can make out the neon tubing. Must be something with which light rays are reflected.
