Cool Signs

20170413_134535

As seen on an abandoned souvenir shop along a Florida highway. At first glance I thought that they sold film and what not as they were the first stop in extreme Northeast Florida for southbound tourists. Cold drinks, smokes, candy, stuffed gators and Florida junk like that. But I got to thinking that it might have meant films as in movie films. This building was left to rot many decades ago and right next door is a closed motel on the same property. Some locals say that the souvenier shop showed movies from time to time for the guests at the motel and some of the bored to death locals. Makes sense as it was in the middle of nowhere and back in the 1960s or earlier that would be a draw.

Anyway, cool old faded signage regardless of what went on. ^.^

The Forgotten Door

Useful no longer but still standing.┬áThousands of hands have felt its cool metal – dozens of repairs and maybe not enough layers of paint have left the door exposed to Florida’s harsh environment. But it provides interesting points of view for the photographer and beckons further exploration. Weathered wood, peeling paint, broken glass and faded curtains add to the door’s appeal.

A once red door in a yellow building.

Peeling paint exposes old repairs and hastens the doors demize.

Hanging on by a thread. The strong Florida sun takes its toll.
