My New Bakersfield Hobby

I have a new hobby for when I'm in Bakersfield, CA visiting the in-laws. I want to do a photo series of Googie style signs, to display in our Athens home (which we plan to decorate in a retro style). There's lots of Googie to be seen in California.

This one did not come out as well as I'd hoped. The proprietor came out and glared at me and then yelled at me across the street to ask why I was photographing. So I didn't try to get a better location for the shot. Will try again next visit, because I saw a perfect place to get a good shot as we were driving off.

Here's a good one! I spotted this sign when we were filling up the tank on my mother-in-law's minivan. I jumped right out and got my photo.
