As a modern 21st Century society, we seem to have signs everywhere telling us what to do, what not to do, where to go, and generally informing us how to behave. There are signs telling us where we are; street names and business names, naming towns and cities and counties and states and sometimes even countries. We have traffic signs and warning signs, big signs, small signs, old signs, new signs, sensible signs, silly signs, fancy signs, boring signs, metal signs, wooden signs, signs in lights…
I quite like signs, and looking through my photography archive I seem to have built up a surprising little collection to date, so have decided to start a weekly series of posts showcasing everyday signs. I’ll maybe try to theme them accordingly so as not to be completely random – but then again, I might not, depending on how it goes.
I’ll start off today with a few signs prohibiting particular behaviours, and take it from there – I wonder how long it might take me to run out of images of signs to post?
If any of you out there want to join in with any sign pics of your own, please do feel free to add a link in the comments below, or just pingback if you’d rather! Looking forward to seeing if anyone else likes photographing signs too, or if it’s just weird old me out on a limb on my own after all… 🙂
