It was a one-star place

Here’s another view of the Texan Motel, which evidently, no matter how hard it tried, was ever only a one-star kind of place.

Texan

I won’t lie: my photographic heart beats a little faster when I see an abandoned place that’s got a window I can look through. This time, I spotted the Texan Motel lobby, complete with a rack of outdated (probably) tourist brochures.

Horseless Carriage

There are indeed a lot of rectangles here, broken up by the curves of that car, which for some reason has a “horseless carriage” license plate.
