Signs: Weekly Photography Challenge

Signs: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

Image by Joe Dunckley

This week your challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘signs’.

You may interpret the theme in any way that you wish – however I guess I was thinking about the signs we see around us every day – road signs, warning signs, tourist destination signs, funny signs (I’ve included some funny ones below)….

Get as creative as you can with your shots – for example – contrast signs with what is around them and you could get some interesting shots.

Once you’ve taken your ‘signs’ photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSSIGNS to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Thanksgiving Challenge.

Here are some Sign shots to get you in the mood for this weeks challenge:

    Using what's handy in a almost-ghost-town of a settlement that was thriving 100 years ago.

    OK - this 1st one is a close up of a sign that displays for a local news station in Chicago:

    I came across the first sign on a rainy night in Baltimore. The second one I photographed somewhere in New York.

    This sign is a little under the weather after weeks of rain. This is Noriel park at Albury which is normally full of people swimming in the nearby murray river. Not so far to walk from the car now!

    I don't have a witty sign to share today. Although there is a government building in town with a huge "NO PARKING" sign painted on the front of it, I chose to share this gem. Right on the main road into town, it has maintained its functionality through the sun and rain, drought and flood - it has stood the test of time.

    My first sign is one that made me double check, then laugh. "Thickly Settled" was taken in September in Massachusetts.

    The second is a Railway Express Agency sign photo I took more than 4 years ago during the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad trip.

    Just a snapshot that I took along the Ironman Lake Placid run course. I thought it was fitting given the number of athletes training on the course.
