Big Star Motel
Behind the Shot
Photographer Carlos Vargas, inspired by his love of the vibrant colors of California, took this image of the historic Big Star Motel sign, located on U.S. 99 in Fresno, California. The motel, which has 30 rooms, was constructed in 1938 as an office complex. It was converted to a motel in 1955, and the sign was added in 1960.
