Signs…do we really read them?

by Dawn Hester March. 26, 2018 872 views

Now that the weather is trying to feel like spring, I decided to take my morning walks outdoors…take in the fresh vitamin D that I really need. I had my Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless camera and 27mm pancake lens with me. I wasn’t for sure what I was going to photograph but I just wanted to be ready. One thing about some of the smallest mirrorless cameras you can throw it in your pocket and it won’t take away from enjoying your walk.

As I was walking I saw a person walking their dog. Of course the dog was “taking care of business”. In this area there are plenty of signs “stoop & scoop” plus the fine amount if you get caught. The dog was stooping but there was no scooping. Don’t give HOA more reasons to increase HOA fees.

Just how often do we really take time to read the signs? Do we care? As I went on my walk I decided to take photographs of some of the signs I walked pass. Enjoy.

By all means please try and obey the signs....

joy So, you are a collector of weird signs and overgrowing sign jungles too! Everytime I will see a "pet waste" signs, I will photograph it for a friend. She is collecting the pictures AND the bags (if they are in some way special). Maybe the locals see me and are thinking: "Tourist are crazy, they are photographing every "sh**".

Daanish lol I hear you. I guess if I didn't see this guy totally ignore the sign I would have not paid much attention either,
