Description Route 66 Fine Art photography, for hanging wall art or framed prints. One of two remaining wigwam motels on old Rt. 66, this one located in Holbrook, Arizona. Each concrete teepee featured its own classic car nearby. I wasn't sure that this really was a functioning motel until I saw a maid's cart parked outside one of the wigwams. The nice lady let me peek inside, revealing a round and comfy hotel room. Sepia version.
Frank Romeo, New Jersey Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement The photography of Frank Romeo, featuring Fine Art prints of the American West, Route 66, and Cities of the United States. My work has been seen and published worldwide, most recently in the documentary motion picture "Autumn of Route 66" and cover art for the latest CD released by the band Turkuaz.
A heartfelt thanks goes out to the folks who now display my art in their homes and offices. I would love to hear from you, so drop me a line through the site itself, or at my Facebook Photography Page: FrankFooterFotos
My Story: I was a 40-something accountant who was downsized (fired) one too many times. After the last company I worked for went under in 2001, I hit the road with my Minolta and haven't looked back. (Of course, I am single - a wife would have sent me right back into the trenches!) Upgrading to digital SLR's along the way, I have visited every one of the lower 48 states, been to every major league baseball park and close to 100 minor league parks, and driven the entire length of old Route 66. These milestones provided a convenient excuse to visit and photograph both big cities and small towns, majestic national parks and cheesy roadside attractions, and an opportunity to meet a ton of nice people in all parts of this great country.
Finally able to do something creative after 20 years behind a desk, I don't see my photography slowing down any time soon. As a result, my photos will continue to pile up at an alarming rate, and I will try to park some of the best ones here, especially those photos that can be enjoyed as decorative wall art. I hope you will give my portfolio the once-over. Most of my works are of the adventurous sort, images that would have provided some comfort to me back when I was chained to that desk.
