  • To find great photographs, one must exit the heavily travelled roads, and take the back roads. In this example, I was driving across the country and drove on Route 66 as much as possible. I came across this old gas station, and in case you hadn't figured it out; at one time it sold diesel, hence the sign. I spent an hour or so here, taking dozens of pictures from different angles.

    America is full of great spots like this, but the people are in too much of a hurry to stop and look for them. In the hour I was here, on the actual Route 66, not one car drove by.
