Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

“Photograph It Now, Next Time Through It Might Be Gone!”
Our next Picture This! assignment is “Photograph It Now, Next Time Through It Might Be Gone!” Old commercial signs, falling down barns, and roadside objects tell of a past that is too often replaced by big box stores and modern billboards, and only photographs can preserve their presence. Our next Picture This! assignment is to find and record some great reminders of the past before they, too, have been bulldozed or torn down.

This old and fading paint store sign is on a wall in the historic district in Trinidad, Colorado, and was photographed with a Canon EOS 5D and a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.
