I've learned one lesson because of my 365 project. If you see something you like go ahead and capture it while you can. I've always loved old signs like this one. While I've been doing my project I've had a mental list of things I'd like to photograph. I made an hour's drive to take this photo of this sign. The motel behind it was condemned and there were police there training drug dogs when I pulled up. They had a barricade up but I asked them if I could please take a photo. I explained that I'd driven there just to get a photo of this sign. They looked at me like I'd lost my mind.
A couple of weeks ago I was back in Joplin and drove past this place and the motel is gone. It's been leveled and the land cleared- including my sign. (sigh)
I don't know what happened to it. I hope that someone had the good sense to salvage it. I'll probably never know.
I'm so glad that I was not deterred by the police who clearly didn't like the idea of having to wait a couple of minutes for me to take photographs.
I'm still wanting to do a road trip through Oklahoma to do a Route 66 photo shoot. I'd better not wait too long!
