    Just some fun shots I thought I would share from a quick stop in Seligman Arizona on Route 66 while on a vacation a couple of months ago. They did a great job promoting the area as the "Birthplace of Historic Route 66" and turning it into a tourist destination after it took an economic hit when Interstate 40 was put in and bypassed it.

    All images with the A6000 and 16-70Z

    Great series!
    As far as the colors go, did you use a polarizer for the sky or was its blue enhanced in post?

    Thanks guys.
    Nick, no, I didn't use a polarizer. I made the blue and other colors a little more vivid. Somehow it seemed appropriate to me for these images and the place.
