“The Most Enduring Signs…”


20130701_3740nikcweb20130701_3739nikcweb …I am still encountering are the For Sale ones.Although I can think of a millions reasons why I ought not to photograph this way, I am addicted to my way of ‘drive by’ photographing as I continue to travel the same stretch of Florida highway a couple of times a month. Although the total length of my trip is about 150 miles, most of the For Sale signs and former gasoline stations are on a relatively short stretch of road around Perry, Florida. When I see the signs disappearing and new buildings going up, I will believe that we might be undergoing a financial recovery. Till then these structures are fascinating objects to photograph.

  1. I’m also a fan of abandoned buildings. Especially like the first shot.
