Photo-A-Day 30



Category:  Rich Color
Subject:  Oxidized Highway Sign
Date Taken: August 20, 2013
Comments:  Walking along a crappy road in upstate NY, littered with junk folks throw out of their cars, I came upon this sign, and there were a number of them along this road, which seemed like a very fancy way of designating a highway.  The signs go virtually unnoticed.  Using brass to designate various sections of a highway must have been seen as normal in 1963.  Nevertheless, I found the verdigris patina to be a wonderful anachronism in 2013.
