Out a few days ago looking for the abandoned businesses all located on what were formerly major US highways that have been adversely effected by the construction of the US interstate highway system. The last image is of a former agricultural inspection station. Inspectors remained in the small structure until the large trucks would pull up, required to stop to be inspected. Now the trucks use predominantly interstate highways where there are now very large inspection stations where from time to time you can see line-ups of the big tractor-trailer rigs.

This time you show us a bit wider views compared to what you showed last time. For me this works a lot better. #2 and 4 are the best, but all 4 together makes the whole experience clearly more complete. The b&w, textures, but certainly some leading lines which slowly enter the image, increase the feel of desolation.
As for the big trucks, faster roads and increasing efficiency constantly, it seems inevitable that we will go towards the so called unmanned road trains. As robots don't eat, all restaurants will disappear too. TFS Roger .

A beautiful addition to this series. Very aesthetic and nostalgic images. Love the way they are composed and presented, and the PP rendering makes them look like very finely drafted pencil drawings.
Of this set I find #2 particularly appealing, but all of them are very good indeed.

#2 for me too. These are some lonely feeling photos, almost sad. I'm also a fan of #4 but maybe the PP treatment is a tad to strong compared to the others.
