Three Days Near the Bay (pt 2)

Here’s a sampling from the rest of the Memorial Day Weekend trip.  Although I shoot lots of buildings & statues, it seems my blog followers are mostly interested in signs — so that’s what I’ll provide you with!

Let’s start out in Napa with a unique neon arrow:

A few more signs from Napa — too early in the morning for this one, the nice red porcelain looks washed out:

This one’s hidden on a used car lot office:

A modern sign but nicely done:

In the middle of nowhere in Middletown at an antiques store:

At the La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant in Cloverdale:

Four signs from Ukiah:

Maybe my favorite of the four.  You just don’t see rolls of film represented in signs anymore:

From Santa Rosa:

At Analy High School in Sebastopol (where the sports teams are known as the Tigers):

I wouldn’t be surprised if that tiger was created by Patrick Amiot whose sculptures are scattered all over town.  His studio (and residence?) is located at Renga Arts in Sebastopol.  These modified vehicles/trailers are visible from the road:

A sampling of the signs in Petaluma:

The last town on this trip was Forestville – which looks quite like this mural (mountains and vineyards):

and, lastly, this unusually shaped Oddfellows sign:

That wraps up this sampling of photos.  There are more photos (different ones)  over at Flickr from this trip:

And I’ll be busy adding lots of other photos to my website (RoadsideArchitecture.com) for the next month or so.  The next trip will be the year’s biggie:  a two-weeker at the end of July.  That’ll be more Northern California but mostly focusing on the Oregon and Washington stuff that I didn’t get to last summer.

Til then — happy trails!

    • Great to meet you as well at the Signs Geeks show. I will be in Portland in late July — but only briefly. Much to shoot in the parts of Oregon & Washington that I didn’t get to last year.
