Lost in America

I'm very fond of Roadside Architecture and the "Jetson" styles of the 50's and 60's. Tiki and Googie are a couple of the trends that most people of my generation, especially growing up in the west, would be familiar with. Kfog, my favorite SF Bay Area radio station had a book reviewer on their morning show today who was speaking about a new book of roadside night photography by Troy Paiva. His work is amazing. All done in camera without digital enhancement, he is using very long exposures and will "paint" with light using theatrical gels. Fantastic stuff.

And if this sort of thing is to your taste, check out this link for an excellent collection of American Roadside Retro.
