I think this was NC 281.  If not, it was in that general area.

The upper deck of Oriole Park in Baltimore. You can see much of I-395 from here.








Same spot after the game.




Finally, East Broad Street in downtown Richmond. Where I am isn't numbered anything anymore, but by the time it comes back uphill it's US 250.

One of those signs you snapped looked familiar. Recognize this one? Ha ha! :)

Here's a classic found in Beloit, Wisconsin

Sorry about poor quality. I was driving my 18 wheeler and could not find a place to pull over to get a better shot.

Ha. Don't be too impressed, I was stopped at a stop light.  I had to zoom in my camera-phone as much as possible to get that shot.

In chronological order,


Located along OR-6 in Tillamook.


I-5 north in Portland from the Morrison Bridge onramp. (On another note, does that blank electronic sign happen to be one of those new variable speed limit signs in Portland?)


I-5 north looking toward downtown Seattle during sunset.

Daryl, I do believe they are the new variable speed limit signs being installed in Portland after being successfully trialed in Seattle. They are discussed in this topic:

Yeah, I think it's the only time I shot at 210mm while at the helm. Only 3 out of 8 were in focus...the sun sets quickly when it's that low on the horizon.

and how much did you crop?  my 200mm has the sun appear about 1/2 that big when a photo is taken on a DX sensor.
