“On Old 64”

“On Old 64”

I found this old barn during one of my back roads wanders. I especially liked the way the light was illuminating the scene for me; the way the lichen covered fence served to draw my eye into the scene. I knew it was meant to be a black and white image.

U.S. Route 64 is the longest numbered route in North Carolina, running 604 miles from the Tennessee state line to the Outer Banks. The route is often referenced “from Murphy to Manteo,” referring to the expanse of the state. It dates back to the era of the Model T and snakes through the North Carolina mountains, by waterfalls, through gorges and some wonderful small towns.

I have wandered many miles along 64 and it is rich in culture, history, and unique scenes.

“On Old 64″ -is offered in two limited editions in my store. One, a 15×10 edition of five prints, and a second, 18×12 edition of ten prints. Both are Archival Pigment Prints on fine art 100% cotton rag paper. I also currently have print 15×10, 01/05 available framed in a contemporary black wood frame measuring 21.25″ x 17.25”.
