A delicate shroud of new spring leaves, in the most vibrant of greens, hovers in front of and above the abandoned log-style motor court cabin in this 8x12 photograph of one of Route 66's most hallowed abandoned sites: The increasingly threatened John's Modern Cabins of Missouri. The wooden makeup of the cabin's exterior has weathered to a soft greyish-gold, fitting in with the abandoned place's wooded surroundings, and a pretty foil to the lush return of growing season captured in the photo.


Photograph Title: Time Slipped Away From Me
Print Size: 8x12 with a .15-.45"ish white border
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Newburg, Missouri, USA


The cabin's simplicity lends it charm even in its ruination. We can see the ends of the stacked logs; some of the abandoned building's green roof has begun to slip ever-so-slightly forward over the eave. Looking at the cabin in my photo, it's easy to imagine what it looked like when Route 66 was a very busily-travelled highway.

Peering into the forsaken cabin, we can see an old fridge, partially hidden by shadow, but not so much that we can't see its corroding, rusting side; the floor of the cabin is rotting away, not helped by the huge hole in its side. All of this melancholy stands in mute contrast to the vibrancy of spring bursting into life around John's Modern Cabins; the trees and shrubbery and grass are all a brilliant green tinged with lime.

It's hard to say how much longer this piece of America's history can stand; happily, vandals have wisely left this place alone, but Mother Nature is not so kind. It will only take a powerful storm or falling tree...then this cabin, too, will be crushed beneath the weight of time and neglect.

≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Abandoned Route 66 Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition Route 66 documentary art 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.

• My photos are 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.
