Meter Mania   Leave a comment

Found on new construction in New Haven. I loved the symmetry of the meters and their shadows.

Abandoned Amusement Park   Leave a comment

Captured at South of the Border truck stop. Sad that these rides were decommissioned, I’m sure at some point kids LOVED to stop here to enjoy the rides while parents got a break from the incessant ‘are we there yet?’ from the backseat. Click on any pic to see them in their full glory (i.e. slideshow format).

South of the Border   1 comment

Stopping at South of the Border (between N. Carolina and S. Carolina on I-95) is like a trip back in time. This giant truck stop is definitely a 50’s throwback! Click on any pic to see them all in slideshow format. I especially liked the restaurant shaped like a sombrero.

New York Fire Escape   1 comment

Squint a little and see how the shadows turn into stairs (or maybe you see something entirely different?).  I enjoyed the angles and the play of light and shadows on a recent walk through New York.
