Signs of Travel!

I seem to have an obsession with taking pictures of signs as we drive through towns. This is the latest collection I took traveling through Arizona on our way to New Mexico. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

Do you think this is the "original" Ponderosa restaurant! Great photos of the signs!

Alice...hmmm that is an interesting thought.

I absolutely adore this kind of stuff - that wonderful crumbling Americana that speaks to better days gone by. Check out my blog sometime, there's a post from a couple weeks ago called "Where We Live" which is the name of a collection of famous art photography that was on display here in LA about a year ago (and now you can get the book at Barnes & Noble). My blog has a link to the collection's page on the Getty Center's website. It's very much in the same vein as what you have here. Very very cool!

These signs are amazing - especially in a see of mass produced signs where you could be in any suburb any place in America.

Thank you for the many facets of life even in Arizona. Your picture depicts the "abundance" of lifestyle cultures and they so enriched my understanding of something different other than I am am familiar with. Thank you for opening up my mind.

Signs are so great--I especially like the handmade ones. some of them are so funny--and not always intentionally.

Very very interesting. Never thought much about signs and suddenly when I saw this post, one tend to notice all the signs in detail. Thanks for sharing and happy weekend, hugs always :)

I like to take photos of abandoned houses. It's always great to find an old place like this too. I like old buildings in general. :)

If you are interested have a look at Flickr. There are a lot of groups there for old signs, abandoned places, including my own group for Ontario.

What a wonderful photographic travel diary. I am traveling across the country soon and might borrow your idea only (of course) if you don't mind.

Also, I lived in Santa Fe for 2 summers and these make me miss the Southwest.

How cool! Near where I used to live there is a "Wigwam Village" of concrete teepees that is a motel from the 50's. It's so cool and retro that everyone wants to stay there!
