Bright, spring-green leaves contrast with the white stucco and broken glass of the long-unused Route 66 diner in this 8x12 abandoned America photo. Straddling the Texas-New Mexico border along Route 66 is what remains of the town of Glenrio; within its now-fuzzy borders stands the abandoned State Line Cafe & Texas Longhorn Motel, a slice of which is the star in this documentary photograph.

In the many years since the last owner locked up the State Line Cafe for the final time, nature has made her inevitable return to the Mother Road town, and that is really the other focus of this photo. Directly in front of the window a slender tree has grown up, spreading its branches across the mostly still-intact glass (the romantic side of me thinks of the tree as both hiding the cafe's forsakenness and keeping the empty building company).


Photograph Title: (Untitled Photo)
Print Size: 8x12 with a .40-.50" white border; please ask about additional sizes
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Glenrio, Texas and New Mexico, USA


As this photograph of the abandoned roadside cafe was taken in springtime, many the tree's leaves have that special lime-hued spring quality, a particular brightness that one only seems to see in April and early May; this luminescent green is a wonderful contrast to the white stucco and concrete block of the State Line's walls.

As you can see, much of its 1950s and '60s life lives on, including in its square front window, onto which someone long ago painted "CAFE" in large white letters. Weathered by the decades, the simple sign has managed to remain fairly crisp on the inside of the empty cafe's glass window.

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

• The limited-edition documentary 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 Route 66 Americana photographs 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.
