screen real estate.
They were taken with a Sony FD-88 digital camera.

|Slow to 60 m/h for the curve ahead. I think this was on US 385 between Cheyenne Wells and Burlington, CO.. I just thought it was neat that they thought you could be going safely fast enough on a two-lane U.S. highway to need to *slow down* to 60 m/h for the curve. It was a pretty serious 90-degree curve, at that!|
The following images have been displayed here at smaller size using html properties, although they are not thumbnails. Downloading them directly from this page will result in the full-size image as I created it. These were scanned in from color prints taken with a cheesy recyclable camera.
|Watch out! Don't scrape your trailer on the berm carrying the railroad tracks. I laughed my ass off when I saw this sign, although it is creative. I think this is from a crossing on 14th Avenue at U.S. 1 just north of Vero Beach, FL|
|Entering Virginia on U.S. 13 south of Pocomoke City, MD. Please don't blow up the
bridge-tunnel. Thank you.
