Fall Road Trip Photos

by Kay~Kacey on 11/21/2012

We’ll take a brief break from showing all things new house, and I’ll share some recent photos I took on a road trip between Columbia and St. Louis. We had pretty fall colors this year. I thought after the long summer draught that it would be a ho hum autumn. But not so much. Very pretty.

Always enjoy a good old barn shot. It was very pretty in the late afternoon sunshine.

Okay, I confess I did quite a bit of work on the next photo…taking out the bazillion power lines they had near the barn.

This Food sign has fascinated me for a long time. It’s in the middle of…nowhere. Nothing around. No old building, No road. Nothing. But it cheerfully proclaims FOOD.


Well, I’m sure I should be unpacking…but it’s so much more fun to play with photos.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving. I’m going to be surrounded by family and good food.

Ali Center – Louisville Kentucky

by Kay~Kacey on 8/31/2011

So when we go visit SuperGuy’s Mom and sister in Lexington, we drive through Louisville. Right at the river there are these tile murals and I finally remembered to have my camera out and ready to take photos!

Okay, not the best photo…but I couldn’t convince SuperGuy to stop in the middle of the interstate. (really, he should be more supportive of my photography, shouldnt’ he??  :toofunny:  ) But you can kind of see here that the tiles are arranged to suggest images of Mohammad Ali.  (okay, so we’ve been going past that for years, and I had to Google what it was. I just knew it was faces.)

This side I always thought was runners…but I guess it’s boxers 😉

When you get up close to it, it just looks like a tile wall. Kind of like magic!

Okay, darnit, you can still see the faces vaguely on this one…once again, SuperGuy would not stop on the freeway…

There you have it. Another road trip adventure with Kacey and SuperGuy!

Historic Route 66

by Kay~Kacey on 5/5/2011

I grew up less than a mile from Route 66.

Route 66

Route 66 is one of the original US highways and runs from Chicago to LA. It was “established” (whatever that means…) in 1926. They removed US 66 from the official US highways in 1985. (who does that??) ’cause, you know, the Interstate System was new and better. 🙄

Anyway…while we were out antiquing last week, part of our journey was along the Historic Route 66. I told SuperGuy to STOP. THE. CAR.  I wanted to get a picture of the Route 66 sign.  He keeps driving…somewhere…I’m like “NO. Stop here!” He’s thinking I’m looking for a Route 66 sign. Nope. I jump out of the car and into the line of traffic…which thankful stopped…and got this photo of Route 66 stamped and worn in the roadway.

…and I lived to tell the tale. I tell you, there’s not much I wouldn’t do to get a photo that I want!
