Okay, this is kind of a rerun of a 2006 Round Robin topic, but I've tried to give it a bit of a twist:
New Monday Photo Shoot #27: Show us a sign that's unusual in some way - even if you have to fake it!
I'm sure that there are lots of interesting, even silly signs where you live, so this should be fairly easy. Myself, I came up with the topic at midnight, and wasn't about to get dressed and go sign-hunting tonight! Instead I just went as far as a sign in front of my next door neighbor's house, took the picture, and then altered it in PhotoStudio. Here it is:
Just thought I'd make the suggested speed for the curve in Calle Mumble a bit more generous!
If that's not enough, here are two views of a sign that was once common in England, but now exists only on props and other representations of the Doctor's TARDIS. This first one is a detail from a pastel drawing I bought at TusCon a decade ago:
It actually didn't photograph very well; too much shine from the flash.
The other depiction is from my TARDIS beach towel:
Beyond the Doctor Who reference, I find the instructions from an old police box interesting as a relic of a bygone era before cell phones.
Now, I'm sure you can top these pictures with great funny, unusual or wickedly altered signs of your own. So how about it? Post your sign pictures to your blog or journal, and remember to leave a link back here in your blog, and a link to your entry in the comments below. I'll be back in a week with the results. Meanwhile, this is Karen, signing off!
