Okay part two.

Before I get started showing you some of the images I wanted to mention when I was doing this it was amazing to see how many of the images fall into MANY categories.  I guess I knew that, but it really dawned on me while I was working on this.  Here are a few of my observations.

——————————————–

 

minimalism/use of space

 

Here it is…minimalism.  This is one of the sculptures along I-95 here in Virginia at the rest stops.  I know, sounds great right?  Well, THEY ARE.  Okay, the rest stops are just rest stops, but the signs/sculptures are awesome.

Huge.

White.

Simple.

Totally. Effective.

typography

 

This is the sign on top of Carl’s Ice Cream.   They just re-opened the 15th.

Which if we could…WHY DON’T THEY OPEN THE 14th?  I mean really!  Who wouldn’t love to take their valentine to Carl’s, ON VALENTINES day?  I’m pretty sure my valentine would like it.  Just an idea Carl’s.

Onward.  This is my image for typography.  The letters are cool and retro, probably original to the business.  It is simple and harkens back to drive-in, diners and poodle skirts.  Love.

balance

Balance in this picture is more than the lines on the bench.  If you look it is the bench, light posts, bricks and greenery.  This is Hurkamp Park downtown, a lovely little place to sit a spell.
