Just one of the many cool vintage roadside signs that still dot the landscape of America's two lane blacktops. This one is in Florence SC on the way to Myrtle Beach. I fear it won't be there long as the property is for sale. Gotta shoot these things while we can!
Told you these were going to be random! I love getting a shot like this. The driver of the tractor
even gave me the thumbs up as we passed, being well aware of what I was trying to do.
We didn't stay at any of the other little mom and pop independent Motels in Cave city other than the
Wigwam Village but I thought they could use a shout out and they have some great vintage
signage. I bet their rooms a bit more "roomy" too! I'd still stay at the Wigwam though. Way cooler if
I wish I could have gotten some evening or night shots of these. I'm not 100% sure that they actually
work but it would pretty cool if they did. These are all just down the street from the Wigwam Village
and are on the way back to the highway or to Mammoth Cave National Park.
I bet this used to be a much better sign. It's got great bones. It probably had lots of neon and
blinking bulbs. I'm glad I don't know how to make neon signs...I'd go broke fixing all these pro bono!
This place was just along the way in Burnside KY. It had such a great sign and well kept building
that I just had to stop and take some pics. It even had a pool that was open!
This place was nestled in the beautiful Smokey Mountains in Waynesville NC. The billboards along
the road got us in the place but we were disappointed to find that they wouldn't serve us breakfast
at a little after noon. It's a diner. They should be able to make what you ask for. The food was good
but we were really looking forward to breakfast.
Again, just spotted this while making our way to the coast in Conway SC and I had to stop and get
the camera out! I shot a little bit of video of the lights blinking since it looked so good. The place
looks like it's been lovingly restored.
These giant windmills just fascinate me. We saw a lot of these out west coming back from California
last year. I've seen fields of them from the highway going to Chicago from St. Louis too but I've
never been so close to them while driving by. They are so beautiful and elegant. Very sculptural
and look like kinetic art. I'd love to see more fields of these spring up everywhere.
Summer's not really over, get out and put some miles on your car. See America!
