Bountiful, road trip on Highway 285, Colorado. There’s lots to see in the San Luis Valley, one of the most bountiful agricultural areas in the country. Bountiful, on the north/south route has large grain silos holding barley for the Coors beer company. This is the sign between the highway and railroad tracks. I found the weathering rather interesting and worthy of a picture. Thanks for looking. G
Framed mountain moon through the old business (Amerigas) sign on highway 522. I couldn’t resist this image from the last full moon. Driving to town I spotted the full moon perfectly framed in the sign. The traffic, at 5pm, on Thanksgiving eve was thick. Standing on the double yellow line, I had a few seconds to recreate what I saw as we whizzed past a moment early. I crossed to the middle of the road when the traffic receded, made a couple of images, then retreated back to the safe side of the road as the traffic thickened again. I repeated this routine two more times until the moon rose beyond the sweet spot. Thanks for looking and humoring me. G
Sign, gun shot to bits, Colorado. Just north of the border at the Lobatos bridge, on the Rio Grande, target practice at this location on these particular marker sings seem to be the norm. Perhaps this part of Colorado could be annexed as it’s generally a scene more reminiscent of New Mexico. Here’s an image “Shot full of holes” from a 2013. Thanks for looking. G
Target practice, New Mexico style. The practice of shooting at road signs while driving by. This sign on the road from Pilar to Carson, has been replaced since I made this image. For now the new sign stands pristine, warning of the upcoming hairpin turn. Somewhere in my portfolio of images I have a whole series of road signs full of gunshot. I’ll let you know how this particular sign is doing when I drive by and shoot it next time. Thanks for looking. G
Days long gone. A store front in Mora New Mexico. Coke, Cigarettes, Phone, and EBT cards accepted. I made this image in February, 2006 when these signs left you knowing in no uncertain terms what you could get for your money … or EBT cards at this location. Since then the building has a new coat of stucco, no phone for sure, but I can’t vouch for cigarettes and coke or whether they still accept EBT cards.
