The Library of Congress has published over 11,000 high-resolution shots of U.S. roadside attractions, and released the images (to which it had purchased the rights) into the public domain. The photos were taken by architectural critic and photographer John Margolies, who spent forty years documenting his travels along U.S. highways, photographing billboards, drive-ins, diners, car washes, mini-golf, novelty buildings, and other roadside constructions.
I have two iPhone photography tips for you. They aren’t technical and will improve your photos.
- Stop holding your phone like a phone to take pictures. Turn it 90 degrees clockwise and hold it like a camera.
- Hold it firmly with both hands and use the “volume up” button as your shutter.
Wasn’t that easy? Now go take beautiful pictures!
