Route 66 teasers

I'm still in the middle of a Route 66 adventure, but thought I'd toss out a couple teaser shots for what I hope is a fun slide show when I get home.

Tucumcari, New Mexico is filled with reminders of the original glory days of the "Mother Road."


Albuquerque's Central Avenue is also historic Route 66 with lots of neon and a popular Saturday night spot for the custom car community.

Hey Chad,

Nice HDR photo.

Wow nice work!

Thanks guys. That really grungy HDR style seems to fit really well with this Route 66 nostalgia stuff. It's actually my Olympus Pen E-P3 doing most of the work with it's Art/Dramatic Tones mode.

Tucumcari tonight!
I have been a Mother Road head for many years having toured various sections during my life and actually lived on the pre 1937 portion that looped through Santa Fe, NM, but the highlight was in 1995 when my brother and spent a couple of weeks retracing the entire route from Chicago to LA. We dipped our toes in Lake Michigan at the start and about 10 days later we dipped them in the Pacific under the Santa Monica Pier. Enjoy your trip, it’s a great experience. I can’t wait to see more of your photos.
