Sign Obsession While Traveling


Yep, it's back again...signs. Glad you are so patient with my obsession. You don't realize how many other shots I have from other travels, at some point I will share those as well. These were all taken in Arizona the day we (me) decided that finding the best root beer around was a good idea.

These never turn out to be the best shots, since we are driving as I take pictures. We probably would never get to our destination if I made D stop every time I needed/wanted to take a photo.

I hope signs like this stay preserved for a long time since they take you back to another era. One of these evenings I'm going to drive around Phoenix at night and get pictures of the ones around here lit up.

These are wonderful, they look just like the movies. I hadn't realised there was anything "old" in the States. Now I just need to know what root beer is... *googling*

It hasn't influenced my work yet. I'm not sure why though....

Nifty, it's not a "beer" really. It's more a soda/pop. Do you have root beer candy in the UK?

Glad to meet another 'sign photographer snapping shops while driving through' person. Great shots!

Waterrose said...

So glad to know you are out there snapping as well!

Oh, those are great, Rose! I'm the annoying person who feels the need to read signs out loud if I'm a passenger. A hold over from childhood, I guess.

how funny...I've never thought about reading them out loud!
