Description

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.

Returns and exchange details
It is my desire for you to be entirely happy with your purchase, so I try to keep my policies fair.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your photo, please contact me within seven business days after receiving the photo print, and I'll work to come to an agreement that we're both happy with. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs as well as items not returned in their original condition.

Shipping policies

Items will be shipped first-class within three days (smaller prints up to 9x12 generally ship the next day; larger items require a trip to our rural post office and may unfortunately take up to three days to ship). Should I be out of town on a photo shoot or on holiday, I will post this in my shop updates and also note the shipping delay in your emailed invoice.

Your ship-to and payment method addresses need to match. If you're sending the item as a gift to someone else, just let me know in a note at the time you order. If a package is returned to me due to an address error on your part, you will be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the item.

Prints are lovingly packaged very securely and shipped flat, enclosed in acid-free tissue paper, protected by twin pieces of foam core and a Tyvek envelope, all in an attempt to thwart any potential damage during their trip via USPS.

If you'd like insurance, let me know and I am more than happy to acquire it for you and bill you for the amount; usually this is not terribly expensive: about $1 US for an order up to $100.

Should an order be lost or not arrive in a respectable amount of time, we'll do our best to find it together. Ultimately, a lost item will be my responsibility; a replacement print will be sent to you at no cost.

If you prefer a shipping vendor other than the USPS, let me know and we'll work it out. Remember: I want you to be a happy customer.

FAQs

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.
