(Get Your .Gifs) on Route 66

Natalie Slater was inspired after taking her Mother Road Revisited project to Houston Foto Fest to make .gifs out of her images from the exhibition. Below are a few of the 30+ images. They start with older photographs (ca.1930-1970) and dissolve to her 2013 pictures.

All were taken along Route 66 between Chicago and Santa Monica.
