Well, this is sad.
In 2009, one of my friends and I took a trip to Las Vegas to photograph wedding chapels along the Strip. We did that, but we also shot plenty of photos of motels in the same area. And I suppose it’s a good thing we went when we did: many of the places we photographed have been since torn down, in the name – of course! – of progress.
The Yucca Motel is one of them. It was demolished in mid-2010. The sign was salvaged and now resides at the Las Vegas Neon Museum. As a matter of fact, the homepage of the museum’s website has a picture of this very same sign. I like my shot better. A lot better.
