Signs! Signs! And More Signs

Signs are a definite favorite with myself and other photographers. Some are vintage, retro, or just retro looking. Billboards, neon, painted on buildings, I don’t know why we are drawn to them. Perhaps it’s that they seem to be art in their own right, created to draw people in. Even the most simple sign can garner attention and make us stop to stare. Some signs have the name of a business and some are warnings for what lies ahead. You’ll find a little bit of everything in this sign gallery.

Everybody’s Favorites

Here is a gallery of the favorites everyone chose.  It was important to me to get the opinion of others because it’s hard for me to be objective sometimes. I know the story. I know the work that went into the art. I know how I felt when I took the photo, so something that is pretty blah to others might be my favorite of all. But sometimes you know when you have one that everyone will love.  Boot fan is an all around favorite for everyone. Who doesn’t love good looking boots? And Selfie in the Window. I saw the young women in the window and knew that I had to take that photo. It has proven to be popular. The flowers are favorites, too. I love all of the maps, but it seems only a few get the thumbs up from everyone else. So, here they are. Feel free to comment.

Oh, yeah, these are all available for sale in my Fine Art America Gallery – click here.

 

Hemingway Slept Here

Some more map art. This time it includes photos of Finca Vigía, Hemingway’s home in San Francisco de Paula, Cuba and quotes from some of the books he wrote there. Finca Vigía means Lookout Farm and it does have a beautiful view.

“The world is a fine place, and worth fighting for” – For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway.
“You never understand anyone that loves you” – Islands in the Stream, Ernest Hemingway.

Cuban Map Art

After working several of my photos from Cuba, I decided to try something different. I wanted to emphasize the idea of travel and adventure that drives me. I have always loved the beauty of maps and so decided to integrate my love of photography and my love of maps.

Cuba or Bust

I recently traveled to the beautiful island of Cuba. The visit was amazing, the people were wonderful, and the rum a little too drinkable. Here are some pics from the trip. Cuba was indeed a photographer’s dream. From the newly painted colorful buildings of Trinidad, to the old world architecture of Havana, it had a little bit of everything. The architecture of Cuba is a mix of Spanish and English Colonialism, as there were held by both for many years. Currently, Cuba is a country in flux. They are rebuilding and renovating. Most of the Cubans we met were very optimistic about their future. I had a wonderful time and look forward to returning some day.
