V48: Reno’s Vintage Motel Signs

A few days ago I took a wander around Fourth Street in Reno, not the best place for a girl to be wandering, but I had on me the 1950s Zeiss Ikon Contina camera Chris gave to me, and was surrounded by a whole flock of some of the most wonderful mid-century motel signs ever.

‘Course…I ran out of film.  And that film has not yet been developed.  Oh the joy of film!

With far too many vintage signs left, I decided to continue with my camera phone, which takes ridonculously good photos, and yes, they’re from the “Retro Camera” app, but I happen to like hipstamatic photos, when used appropriately…what’s more appropriate than vintage motel signage in the most hipster part of Reno?

Anyway, here are my phone snaps from the day – enjoy a little 1950s goodness today, from the Biggest Little City in the World. 🙂
