Salon 219- Signs

Not the I'm in a habit of taking pictures in public conveniences but I came across this at Birmingham Moor Street station the other day.

by Andrew Peter Martin, on Flickr

So lets try "signs", anything you fancy but more points if the raise a smile.

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Finish date - Midnight GMT 25/2/2017 ( bit of extra time as I'm away the week up to the closing date).

See what you can find.

Apologies this is so large - I used to upload much bigger and have just edited this so it's a smaller resolution but it's still coming out. Help please?

Re: Salon 219- Signs

Just a gentle bump before I go away. Remember you can post two pictures.

I'll try to look in if I can find some WiFi next week.

Sign at the Florida Welcome Center



Saw this one in Hawaii



I'm kicking myself for not stopping to take one in California. It was a huge sign in a cornfield that read FRESH CRON!

Well done Garry, well deserved.

Funnily enough, I saw some crackers yesterday outside a pub in Burford!
