Open Highways & Roadside Motels

I haven't posted anything for awhile now, but I have been doing a lot of photography in and around the greater Los Angeles area and you can see some of my work here on flicker

One of the things I love to photograph is old neon motel signs and eateries, whether it's day or night I'll capture these beacons of the roadside that advertise a place to get a bite or spend the night, it's the warm glow of neon that makes the night magical and some old burger joint or honky tonk only add to the flavor
So here a slide-show video I put together with some of my images of the road and the type of signage that one finds along that highway all to the music of Wayne "The Train Hancock signing one of my personal favorites "California Blues"

  1. Hi Mark,

    You've got a really great blog here. I'm not from LA and find every journey in the city fascinating and it's nice to see a local find the same enjoyment. I really like your photo of Oak Crest Market posted on Yelp. In my own photos I've learned to take into account the Rule of Thirds which helped my photography immensely. I think if you were to take it into account it would make some of the incredible photos you take simply amazing. I especially love the vintage bikes and cars. Keep up the great posts!
