Thematic Photographic 376 - Signs

That's just nuts
Valdosta, GA
January 2015
We're surrounded by signs. Everyone wants to sell something, and they'll use everything from hand-made paper and cardboard to giant high-technology, interactive screens to grab our attention and give us their best pitch. It's almost impossible to miss the onslaught of messaging, and it's almost impossible to appreciate just how overwhelming it can be for folks who just want to get through the day in one piece.

This is why I've chosen signs as our latest Thematic theme. Because they're all around us, yet we rarely take the time to take them all in. So I'd like us to explore signage in all its forms - both good and bad, pleasing to the eye and downright ugly. If you see signage that catches your eye, I'm hoping you'll share it here.

Your turn: For the next week, I'd like you to point your camera at a sign - any sign - then share what you get by posting it to your blog and leaving the link in a comment here. If you're new to the Thematic thing, head here. I'm looking forward to seeing the diversity of sign-y visions in your work. Have fun with it!
