Photos by Chris: Vintage Signs

Pfeiffer Photos is a team effort.  I manage the daily ins-and-outs of our little photo biz, write the blog, all that good stuff, but without the images we wouldn't be Pfeiffer Photos.


Mar-Don Motel 

I often think of Chris as my semi-silent business partner.  I admit it, I have a tendency to highlight much of my own work from the cameras (we have four now!), but some of our best-sellers in the shop have come from the viewfinder of my husband.  We have very different techniques and shoot in different styles, and I have to say, I am often surprised and really admire his unique point-of-view.


Capital Hill Motel

This post is my first, but not my last, dedicated 100% to his art.  These photos are fresh from his memory chip--captured this week.  Feel free to leave comments because he does follow my blog and he will read them all! :-)

Happy Weekend, All!

These are wonderful! Terrific to see these old signs. They have such a great style and initiate so many road trip memories. Chris, thank you for some nostalgia ... great works.

Cool vintage signs! I rather like signs. I collect photos of interesting signs I have seen. Thanks for sharing these!

I made a little YouTube slide show video of some signs I collected.

Those are great! I especially love the red sign against the dark blue sky. Great contrast!
