Route 66 Quirks

Cadillac Ranch 2

Halo! We are back from our trip and first things first: thank you for the happy wishes for the new year and our anniversary on the earlier post.......here's wishing you all a very happy 2009 :)

Now back to the trip......it was a memorable one for us and now the mammoth task of uploading and sorting through the thousand odd images begins.......while I am dying to share the photos from New Mexico, for the sake of my own sanity I will try and go through the images in the chronological order (that is, if I can continue to follow my own rules :D)

These images from our second day on road are from Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. On this trip, we followed much of the Route 66 either on it or on the interstates running parallel to it and every quirky Route 66 photo-op was given the attention it deserved ;D

These ten, graffiti-adorned, half-buried nose-down, used Cadillacs supposedly represent the Golden Age of American Automobiles. Kinda ironical, don't you think, for the present times when the Big Three are in the state they are today. Since the site is open to public without any restriction, the painted graffiti is ever changing. Needless to add, I thoroughly enjoyed adding these to my collection :)

I love the very first shot (the others are as great!)

Gawdess said...

excellent and evocative shots, I loved the transition from the wide, far away view to the final up close of paint on metal

Shalom said...
