W/NW Signage

Some vintage era signage persists, typically on roads that were once the main byways of the country, now replaced by interstate highways. This one's in Mobile AL, on old highway 90.

How was that picture taken and processed if you'd divulge?
I like the feel it has about it. The vignetting and grain work well to give a sense of detachment.

I'm not sure how "vintage" this is, but this establishment has been around for quite awhile, and is much loved by travelers up and down Hwy. 395 in CA and NV:

Kind of a different sign, on a remaining section of the Old Lincoln Highway ...

Non-vintage, but still signage.

I remember that Suckling Pigs one ...

Here's a couple from that roll of Sensia which I had cross-processed as C41.



And a very famous iconic sign ...

Sorry for the inordinate delay in reply; I hadn't followed the thread that I started!

As far as processing, it's an image from an R-D1 that I processed in Adobe Photoshop Elements. Used layers to develop the vignette (e.g. oval selection tool, with feathering, BW conversion using Fotomatic BW-Plus filter, and grain addition with Elements grain feature. Please ask if you want any more specifics.

Thanks for the comment,

John
