13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Main Street, Encino, New Mexico
Let's call this a "sign" of the times, at least as it relates to American rural decay. This sign is on the main road going through Encino, New Mexico, a small rural town in New Mexico on Highway 285. With each trip we watch it decaying before our eyes. (This highway appeared in Robert Frank's THE AMERICANS.)
