Here’s a sampling from the rest of the Memorial Day Weekend trip. Although I shoot lots of buildings & statues, it seems my blog followers are mostly interested in signs — so that’s what I’ll provide you with!
Let’s start out in Napa with a unique neon arrow:
A few more signs from Napa — too early in the morning for this one, the nice red porcelain looks washed out:
This one’s hidden on a used car lot office:
A modern sign but nicely done:
In the middle of nowhere in Middletown at an antiques store:
At the La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant in Cloverdale:
Four signs from Ukiah:
Maybe my favorite of the four. You just don’t see rolls of film represented in signs anymore:
From Santa Rosa:
At Analy High School in Sebastopol (where the sports teams are known as the Tigers):
I wouldn’t be surprised if that tiger was created by Patrick Amiot whose sculptures are scattered all over town. His studio (and residence?) is located at Renga Arts in Sebastopol. These modified vehicles/trailers are visible from the road:
A sampling of the signs in Petaluma:
The last town on this trip was Forestville – which looks quite like this mural (mountains and vineyards):
and, lastly, this unusually shaped Oddfellows sign:
That wraps up this sampling of photos. There are more photos (different ones) over at Flickr from this trip:
And I’ll be busy adding lots of other photos to my website (RoadsideArchitecture.com) for the next month or so. The next trip will be the year’s biggie: a two-weeker at the end of July. That’ll be more Northern California but mostly focusing on the Oregon and Washington stuff that I didn’t get to last summer.
Til then — happy trails!
