#158: Sky Rink Number-Gazing

Chelsea Piers, NYC

Last I checked, hidden cameras weren't exactly encouraged in public locker rooms, so I tried to be discreet about this one. I've been fascinated by this angular, oddball locker typeface lately, and let's face it, who doesn't like to see the word KRYPTONITE spelled out in some blockish, intimidating all-caps? (Well, I can think of one fellow, but I believe he's busy with a hangover from Comic-Con.)

I was sure to tuck the lens away swiftly before lacing up my ice skates and acting like nothing happened, lest anyone get the wrong idea. It feels a little prurient taking such interest in typefaces in a place as flatly unromantic as a locker room. But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
