Florida Bowling Alleys
I started photographing old signs years ago in an effort to try to document a part of Florida that seemed to be disappearing at rapid rate. So many of my images are mediocre prints, but Photoshop allows me to re-crop and intensify their color. As I transition to a digital library from conventional photography, I discovered the online community at a Flick'r to be a great resource for these images. It's interesting to me that photographs are not longer called "shots", but are now referred to as "captures."
Debra Jane Selzer, aka Agilitynut, recently started a Flick'r group for roadside bowling alley signs, so I took it as an opportunity to scan some of these from my early travels across the state.
