Once the standard-bearer of Canute's Washita Motel, the neon sign featured in this 5x7 documentary photo is in a rather sad state now that the old Oklahoma Route 66 motel has been turned into apartments.


Photograph Title: Washita
Print Size: 5x7 with a slender white border
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Canute, Oklahoma, USA


What was once the motel sign's bright red, white, black, and sky-blue paint has faded and worn away, leaving the old steel sign mottled with grey and steely blue from top to bottom. Interestingly, despite the lack of professional care given to the Washita Motel's neon sign, this documentary photograph (taken in 2011) shows the old neon sign hasn't rusted too much; the "(No) Vacancy" flag below the big block "MOTEL" letters is the only part of the sign exhibiting obvious oxidation, the ochre on its roadside edge coordinating nicely with the red arrow.

Though the evening light made the old Washita Motel sign a little difficult to capture, I think the slightly soft look of my Mother Road photo seems fitting for the old place. The once-flashy neon sign is weathered, softened and worn in almost like a favourite pair of jeans. Still-taut electrical lines leading to the sign and zipping through the blue sky behind it are the crisp-button down to the sign's weathered, mottled surface. Altogether, it's a thoughtful glimpse of yet another Route 66 town bypassed by the interstate.

• 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.
