Next freeway exit to Kyneton

Ghost sign on the road between Kyneton and Malmesbury, Victoria, Australia. The picture above is cropped slightly to better show the lettering, while the picture below shows the wider, lonelier context. I could choose my subject but not my timing: these photos were taken in the harsh midday light of a 40 C degree day.

From Moore Street, VIC 3039. This is one of two very similar signs on the same stretch of road: same wording, same lettering, similar weathering. I chose to photograph this one for its squashed-up last line – apparently they figured out the spacing on the other one. The signs are old and beaten but still doing their job.

Near 63 West Street, Ascot Vale, VIC 3032. This lovely sign is almost unreadable due to rust. Here is what I can make out:
