U.S. Route 66 – Update

photoventuresI’ve just arrived back in the UK after a pretty hectic 19 day trip along US Route 66. My initial plans were to post a small selection of images each day along with a short description of events and places I had visited.

Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo, Texas

As explained in my earlier posting, the trip began in Chicago, Illinois and took us through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California. We endeavoured to follow the old road as best as possible making stops to photograph many of the historic landmarks and people we met along the way. The trip was organised by my good friend Roger Reynolds at Photoventures (

All images were edited in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 (Public Beta) and Photoshop where additional work was required. I also used Lightroom 5 to catalog all files, which included applying IPTC metadata, keywords and GPS tagging.
