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.

Heavy with Peach – or "Millions of Peaches, peaches for me"

Wow, is our Peach Tree preggers. I’m about to pick them, but wow, wouldn’t that be uncomfortable for a tree! I remember that 9th month! Anyway, things have been crazy here, Rex has come to work with me (Widget Inc) and so we’re officially self employed. I’m convincing him to share my love of blogging by actually posting here more, so we’ll see. We agreed to have our school board rep over to give his

WordPress issues!

I have been unable to post for a month -sigh! I installed WordPress a month ago, and moved all my posts, but seem to have issues getting posts to show up with this template. Sigh. Amazing, I might be able to use my chosen template. I’m finding wordpress to be very unpredicatable.  Anyway, I’m here. I’m reworking Midcentury style as well. I’m thinking about putting up a gallery of good vs bad mid century makeovers.
