I shot this the day after Thanksgiving 2012 while on a short Route 66 jaunt with my wife and brother. It was a fun day trip. Wish it didn't take me 10 months to get to these. As I look back, a couple months before this, my computer was running poorly for about three weeks. And then it was in and out of the repair shop another three weeks. I shot close to 1,000 pictures…
In Tucumcari, New Mexico on Route 66. Unfortunately it was a rainy day when I was there. Just love these old neon signs. Got to go back at night. Read the signs closely for 50's and 60's talk. Also this was taken before I was doing 3 shot HDR.

The Arizona Route 66 Museum is located upstairs in Kingman, Arizona’s Historic Powerhouse, the very building that lit the way for the earliest Route 66 travelers. It opened in May 2001 to depict the historical evolution of travel along Route 66.
In Bluewater, New Mexico. Along "old Route 66" outside Grants. As in many of these old motels, the motel itself has long been closed. Now this one houses used cars. Shot with a Canon 30D with a 10-22mm lens opened to 10.
A close up of the sign for Mr D'z Route 66 Diner. Mr. D’z started as a Kingman Cafe in the 1930s and was a Kimo Shell station for a time. Currently it is a family-owned diner that was ranked #2 in the state by Arizona Highways in 2009. It was also visited by Oprah Winfrey on her road trip in 2006. Kingman,Arizona October 2006
