comp and circumstance
Driving back from stacking tonight, I got a bit lost, unable to find my route back to the parkway. I was frustrated, but there turned out to be compensations. Inexplicably there are quite a few good old signs along Route 100 near, I think, Tuckahoe, which I'd remembered registering but never got a chance to stop. I found myself back on this road and decided it was a perfect time to finally get to photograph them. So I pulled over and tried to get as far back as I could without standing in the middle of traffic. I think I will definitely use some of the photos as reference for paintings, and I liked transforming my (rare, I assure you!) navigating ineptitude into something that "happened for a reason".
