Jesus Christ Is Lord Travel Center #1

Driving through Amarillo, Texas on my way to New Mexico, I saw a huge billboard that said; "Jesus Christ is Lord, Not a Swear Word." I Thought it was just one of the many religious billboards you see along the highways in Texas, until I got close enough to see that it was actually the name of a truck stop! I didn't get to stop, because it was late at night, but I made sure to stop there on the way home.

The Jesus Christ is Lord Travel Center is like an ordinary truck stop, except that they actually have church services and bible study meetings there, in addition to the usual truck stop services like fuel, food, and showers. I thought it interesting how they blended religion with commerce, as in this photograph, with the large signs advertising Krispy Krunch Chicken alongside the proclamation that Jesus Christ is Lord, Not a Swear Word.


Update: The Jesus Christ Is Lord Travel Center closed down sometime in 2013.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
