Shirt Laundry

Shirt_Laundry_01
Their unapologetically loud… I guess thats why I like them… flashing lights, crazy shapes~ I’m talking about Vintage road signs of course. You know the ones… mix matched colors, shapes, fonts with no rhyme or reason … what’s not to love?Β Β Nothing but gorgeous chaos floating in the sky.

Sadly this “Shirt Laundry” is closed for business, but I’m still very fond of this small odd shaped building and it’s bold, colorful crown.

  2. great shots, awesome colors, and of course fantastic signs… they seem to have all vanished here in Belgium, you can find smaller ones on a flea market, if you are lucky! Greetings, Guy

  3. I’ve only been on a very small stretch of Route 66 and it was very disappointing! Out near Kingman AZ. But I will go again one day. And hopefully bring back photos like these! I love these old signs and old buildings. So much more character!

  4. This is great photography and very inspiring to me. I added some oil paint texture to your photo just to see what it would look like. I like it. If you want I could post you a link.
