About Frank Gifford, the photographer behind these images: Frank began exploring the Mother Road and related interests after the year 2000. In a video-dominated world where images jump, twitch and jiggle (but almost never linger) he prefers a still photograph that provides a License to Stare. 19 of the Mother Road images are also at the Route 66 Interpretive Center in Chandler OK, www.route66interpretivecenter.org. Others are at Home 66 in Slovakia, www.home66.eu. Rt 66 Pix makes for a convenient trade name (and a snappy URL) but the actual scope of the site is much broader. Perhaps one-third of the images were taken elsewhere. The National (Cumberland) Road has its own gallery, and development of a Lincoln Highway gallery has begun. Separate galleries are devoted to artistic blur, street photography and other interests.

(Although some plant species — and certainly,

Revisit the moss question and 50's art and architecture illustrations and photos.

I still haven’t gotten much input on my moss question (see the previous post), anyone have any idea? I’m off today to help hang pieces in my first art show (see my other blog for info) and so was thinking about art. For those of you who are just into the 50’s house thing, you may enjoy the flickr world of 50’s illustrations. I’m not sure if these are all the available groups out there,
