Thank you to everyone who participated in our most recent #ModernismProject photo challenge – #wanderlust. It was great to have Jason Hudson look through all of your submissions from a photographer’s point of view. He chose Miguel Santos’ photo of a little diner just off highway 99 in central California (Selma, CA) called Brooks Ranch. What caught Miguel’s eye was that the original structure of the diner and its sign were largely intact. In fact, many small towns along highway 99 have mid-century modern structures that remain beautifully original. Over the years, Miguel has been photographing the architectural details and researching these lesser-known modernist structures during his road trips through the central California region. Even though he now lives in Massachusettes, he’s planning on attending Palm Springs Modernism Week once again this year.
Jason chose Sergio’s photo because, as he put it, “I’m a sucker for signage and big skies.” He was drawn to the photo’s really great exposure and appreciates the patience Miguel exercised to capture the sign at just the right time of day.

Thank you to everyone who participated, and especially to our guest judge, Jason Hudson! Please keep playing along and sending in photos from around the globe. Stay tuned for the next challenge which will be announced on November 29th (we’re skipping next week since it’s Thanksgiving!) when we partner with Angela Elias from Casa Sugar of the wildly popular lifestyle and entertainment platform, Popsugar.
