Derelict ‘Fabulous 40’ Motel, Texas
This motel was open up until fairly recently, but has since closed down. Found in town of Adrian, TX, it is right next to the famous Mid Point Cafe. I love the rustic run down look of this sign. I wonder if the motel ever was fabulous!
Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo TX
Cadillac Ranch is one of those crazy places that always stick in your memory. Put together in 1974 by an art group called ‘Ant Farm’, it is basically 10 Cadillacs nose down in the soil in the middle of a huge field just outside the town of Amarillo, TX. What’s really great about it (and what America excels at) is not only its quirkiness, but the interactive nature of the piece. People are encouraged to bring paint cans and spray their markings on the cars. This makes for an ever changing piece of art, and no two pictures of it will be the same. I love that! Every now and then, a new base coat is applied and the whole process begins again.
