Got yourself a gun,
Mama always said you’d be

Photo Blogs of Distinction – Soho Journal features Fading Ad and fellow photobloggers

Soho Journal

The Soho Journal “went sightseeing online” and singled out Fading Ad Blog as one of their favorite “engaging, compelling photography blogs.” Looks like John Coakley didn’t have to go far since the other two outstanding photoblogs he featured were in my blogroll. Adrian Kinloch’s Brit in Brooklyn and Chris Adams’ Lonely Pictures were also given rave reviews for their singular and poetic visual perspectives. Coakley went on further to say:

And remember, these sites all have excellent links sections to allow you to spend even more time at work looking at pretty pictures that aren’t porn. Enjoy!

Click on The Soho Journal logo above to read the article. Here are some images from my fellow photobloggers I found compelling.

Chris Adams’ Lonely Pictures

The Petty Motor Hotel sign is in Lufkin, Texas and Whitakers Grocery is in Adams’ home town of Nacogdoches, which is also documented in his Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches blog.

Adrian Kinloch’s Brit in Brooklyn

These are some of Kinloch’s favorite signs, the first being what Kinloch explains is “a vacuum-formed sign that I like in Park Slope” and the second image, which is one of my favorites- the Gowanus megalith on 3rd and Degraw Street.

Thank you Soho Journal!
