A New Series - Weapons of Past Destruction
I've been working on this series on and off for awhile now, and it's time to get serious with it. The focus here is to photograph old decommissioned equipment of war, now on display in public parks and memorials. I'm finding it so strange that these vehicles of death are now set out for us to remember those lost, and for our kids to play on.
Here's the latest image from the series - from Navy Park, New Century Air Center, near Gardner, KS. Click on the image to be taken to bobgreenspan.com, to see more of the series.

I came across this little gem (or is it an orange) of a building last week in Cartago, CA, halfway between the Sierras and Death Valley. I have no idea what its purpose is, there was no signage. It probably won't be around too much longer, as the state of California has plans to turn the 2 lane in front into a 4 lane divided highway in 2015.

White Haven Motor Lodge
It's a sad time around here- The White Haven Motor Lodged closed in late June, after a 53-year run. The Iconic sign, possibly the best neon motel sign I've seen this side of Las Vegas, was disassembled and removed last Thursday. The good part of the story though, is that The Johnson County Museum of History was the winning bidder at auction, and will eventually display after their move to a new and larger facility. The museum is currently in the planning stages to become a National Museum of Suburban History.
Bob Greenspan Photography has already made a donation to the museum, to be used toward restoration of the sign- and I urge others to do the same. Information can be found at www.jocomuseum.org.
