Here is the original photograph taken through the back window of an old car that has been placed at the side of the road in the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona where the course of the original Route 66 is marked by the old poles, the newer highway beyond.

  1. Like the picture, the trucks could almost be Buffalo, the new food larders, lumbering across the plains. And the electric or phone pylons, the ‘singing wires’ that so fascinated the plains indians, carrying the white man’s messages into the distant future. Nice work.

    • thanks! I like your take on the photo. It’s from a trip I made with my family in 2013. In the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona there is an old car set as a monument next to the road where the course of the original Route 66 is marked by the line of old poles, the newer highway just beyond. The photo is taken looking out through the back window, the words came later. I have messed around with the colours a bit as you can see but I will add the original for you to compare. Cheers, Colin.
