      • It’s amazing how vintage signs really reflect their country of origin! We have some lovely old metal signs round here but it’s a totally different style to your US designs, same for English vintage too! Great subject for a photo series or several, that’s for sure πŸ™‚

    • I think that American vintage road signs have a particular style all their own– the words, “no rhyme or reason” come to mind when I see them … and yet somehow they have their own beauty… zany colors, shapes, lights and all πŸ˜€

    • Thank you very much SH! πŸ™‚ I love vintage road sings like these — do you have these in England? These are fantastic– very small, out of the way type places to eat– I thought about posting images of my favorite dishes that I eat at each place– but then decided against it– but the Fried Chicken at Clayton CafΓ© is WICKED!! πŸ˜€

      • I live in Orlando — so we have quite a few around town…especially the older part of town — and there are also a lot around the beaches (which are less than an hour from here) …yes you all must come– I think you would love us! …particularly (even though I’ve never met you) I think you would love the West— deserts and mountains and such- seems to suit you… not the mention the Grand Canyon …utter gorgeousness! …Did you know you can hike to the bottom- it takes about 3 hours — such incredible beauty- almost unparalleled πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      • My wife danced in Vegas back in the late 90’s (Yes, I married a hoofer…I said hooFer πŸ™‚ ), and did the canyon by helicopter and on foot to the bottom….She never tires of telling me how amazing it was…
        Personally I think you both should stop rubbing it in!

      • LOL~ okokok πŸ˜€ …seriously I think you’d pack your lens and get lost wandering — my grandfather paid for my trip and for me to stay at the Phantom Ranch – which are lodges right at the bottom of the Canyon –I stayed for almost a week– UNFORGETTABLE! …and I do HIGHLY recommend the Mule Duffel Service!!

  1. These are really cool pix, especially the first one. I like how the sign is almost the exact same color as the sky, but you capture the lines well and the depth of field. Great shot!
