Throughout New Mexico, vintage motel signs have been left standing long after the original establishments are long gone. This colorful example can be found in Grants, NM, along the historic Route 66 corridor.

Canon 5D MK II, Tamron 28-300 VC, 3 images AEB +/-2, tripod mount, processed in aperture and the photomatix plugin

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!

    Love stuff like this. Great shot.

  • Thanks! Most of these have modern lines and lights around them… I was lucky to spot this one standing all alone.
