Out West: Roadside Randomness on Film

One thing that struck me about my travels out West, was just how much random stuff was out there. In places like the Mojave Desert you'd expect to find nothing more than dirt, rocks, and a handful of plants that more often than not have some sort of spikes or thorns to stab you with; but instead the roads through the desert and most of the landscape in the American Southwest are littered with strange things.

The shoe fence.

I never did find the fresh jerky, but I love hand painted signs.

There were plenty of abandoned gas stations and gift shops and other tourist traps.

Dinosaurs are absolutely everywhere!

Just like the dinosaurs, there are also giant arrows all over the place.

Photos taken with Canon TL QL, 50mm f/1.8, 28mm f/2.5, and 80-200mm f/4.5; using Kodak Gold 200, and Fujicolor Superia 200 film.
