Purple and gold, the sunset behind the abandoned drive-in theatre's ticket booth featured in this Route 66 photograph seems almost too apt a commentary on the state of this now-lost Oklahoma landmark. An overgrown gravel road, tentatively making its way through yellow tall grass on the right side of the documentary photo, allows us to see the route cars took to the drive-in's screen for an outdoors night at the movies. Yet behind the abandoned booth, the sky blooms in sprightly shades of lilac, blue, and silver-fresh, seeming lively and young.


Photograph Title: Sunset, The 66 West Twin
Print Size: 8x12 with a 1/8-1/4" white border
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Weatherford, Oklahoma, USA


A faded sign on the front of the quiet and deserted 66 West Twin Drive-In ticket booth bears a thank you to the local and national companies that had helped the drive-in re-open for business to great fanfare (and a packed theatre) in 1999. Ensuring the heartfelt, but now faded, acknowledgement part of the centerpiece of this Route 66 documentary photograph, I couldn't help but wonder how the old drive-in could have undergone what was clearly a well-supported revival and then demise in less than a decade.

Closed in 2005 or 2007 (the facts are a bit unclear), Oklahoma's 66 West Twin suffered her final indignity when she was razed in November of 2011, just a few months after I took this and several other photographs of the old drive-in.

Just a few steps to the west, a megaplex stands.

≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Abandoned America Documentary Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition photo you receive will not be watermarked.

• I personally sign & number the back of each art photograph. After 776 prints are made, the edition is closed and the photograph will no longer be available for sale.

• Professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a matte finish to be smudge, fade, and water resistant.

• Very few of my art photographs are a standard print or frame size; thus each print has a slender white border surrounding the photograph itself. This border not only allows you to buy a frame 'off the rack', but serves to lend a bit of additional protection to the actual photograph itself from any serious damage.

• A signed Certificate of Authenticity is included with each photo print.

• Signed photographs are carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, sandwiched between pieces of foam core, and mailed First Class. Once I have a tracking number, it will be sent to you.

• My monitor is professionally calibrated for colour; therefore, the colours in your received print may be slightly different from what you see displayed online.

As few of my finished photographs are standard frame size, each of my photographic prints has a white border all the way around the image. This not only means you can buy a frame 'off the rack' if you do not want a custom frame, but the white border does protect the image itself from errant fingerprints or other unintentional damage.
Since these photographs are my own interpretation of the sights as seen by me, I am sorry, but I generally will not make a colour photo black & white or vice-versa. Occasionally during post-production I'll be unable to decide which I like better and publish both, but while it does happen, it's not often, and the image I do release is not arbitrary, but the one I think best suits the subject and composition. Thanks for understanding this.
