Friday—Where’s Your Sign?

06 Nov

This post relates to a challenge by Surface & Surface Photography. Since most of my photography over the past 5 years is along backroads of rural America, I already have quite a few sign pictures in my collection. If you are paying attention to what you pass by along the road or trail, you can catch some pretty interesting signage. Don’t miss out. There’s a whole world out there zipping right past you. Don’t miss out on a thing!


As you come in to Turkey, Texas, you are greeted by this big metal art sign. This is a very popular kind of art in this part of Texas. In fact, for miles as you drive down the lonesome 380 across the Texas Panhandle and New Mexico to Roswell, almost every ranch will have this massive black custom signs at their gates or mailbox. I have posted this photo before in the past but it is one I have always enjoyed looking at.

Today is Friday. I shall be making a drive across horse country this weekend and am sure I will find something interesting for next Friday.

    I love these little snapshots. I would never see these were it not for you.

    Cheers Buddy, I’m back on a limited basis.

    That is a way cool metal art sign! Some artist had done an excellent job in designing and crafting this. 🙂

    This is a good capture. That sign has been made by an artistic and competent craftsman. Besides, you don’t try to “show off” the sign itself, but also a little of the surroundings and I definitely think it adds something special to your photo.

    We all should just slow down and look around, then we all will know the beauty that is around us.
    Thanks for pointing it out again.
