Highway 395 Near Bridgeport, CA

A recent trip up Highway 395 from Los Angeles to Yosemite didn’t yield too many sign discoveries. We where rushing a bit to cover as much ground as we could while the baby slept, and then spent most of the week three miles down in a canyon above Yosemite Falls. However, this incredible deconstructing sign deserved a stop. This was an experience of “Just Passing by. Intimately Unforgettable” a phrase coined by art critic David Pagel to describe the work of the artist Kirk Pederson. Pedersen is a friend and colleague who’s paintings, photographs, and books explore the intricate beauty of urban decay.
