Sleeping At The Southern Motel by 

Part of the road map of fading America are these little roadside motels that once dotted the landscape of America’s highway system. As the interstate highways came in and began to bypass these places, and our expectations as travelers changed, these places have fallen on hard times

Now, somewhere on the rural highways of Georgia, places like this sink into the weeds and are reclaimed by nature, but not forgotten entirely just yet.

    this is a fabulous image – especially when viewing it in the dark as the colours and tones really stand out – in particular the sky – really nice composition too.

    This is great, very… not sure what the word I am looking for is.. very impressive though. I would normally look at something like this in real life and say( hmmm.. they need to update their neon" But you have turned it into a masterpiece. Well done.

    Mark you could take a road trip and photograph them. Or I could win the lottery and come and do it.
