My Photographic Journey Around America

Intercourse

Certainly one of the most joked about names for a town in the country, Intercourse, Pennsylvania is a neat little town in the heart of Amish Country. I’m glad they have put a seat next to the sign and embraced the idea of people stopping for a photo.

Skateland

Long closed by the looks of it, but I just couldn’t pass by this awesome sign. There are probably a lot of memories in this old skating rink outside of Memphis, Tennessee.

Tunica Neon

I do love a good neon sign. It is also great to be back in the Mississippi Delta – a poor region rich in tradition, good music, good food and good people. This sign was at the Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitor Center in Tunica, Mississippi.

Mardi Gras Beads

Sorry for my absence, but I’ve been packing up and getting myself down here to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. A whole week of parades and parties is upon me and I’m really looking forward to it (and to taking lots of colorful photos). I saw this sign walking around the neighborhood I’m staying in and it made me smile.

Luna Games

Every once in a while I see a sign that just has to be photographed. Nothing else, just the sign. This one is at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.

Coney Island Sign

I finally made it down to Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. Off-season of course, but I have a strange fascination with such colorful lively places being shut down for the winter with grey sky for a background.

Nashville Signs

It is always great to be back in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m always so drawn to cool signs, especially neon ones.

Quebec City Sign

I thought this was just the coolest little sign in the heart of Quebec City.

This signpost is in beautiful Stowe, Vermont. Such a great small town atmosphere!

Rest in Peace B.B. King

This weekend we have lost a musical genius and an American icon. Riley King, better known as B.B. King went from the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta to music superstardom and world recognition. One of the hardest working people in the industry, he was playing over 200 shows a year into his 70s. This is an old photo of his place on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. Before the world knew him as B.B., Memphis knew him as the Beale Street Blues Boy. Rest in peace B.B.

 


Wildwoods Sign

I love the playfulness of this sign right on the beach between Wildwood and Wildwood Crest, New Jersey.

The Hollywood Sign

I love that one of the best views of the Hollywood sign anywhere is from Hollywood Lake dog park. But here it is, obviously in Hollywood, California.

Nashville Hard Rock

I liked this sign for Hard Rock Café in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. I thought the lighting and colors were cool and the building behind it gave it some interesting contrast.
