Yes, I give myself a fail.
See, I was cruising along this month decently. Then some crap happened. What, you may ask?
- My main walk around lens (17-40) is still shot. I can’t afford to have it fixed… yet. That greatly hampered things. Still, I have an iPhone and a point and shoot and other lenses…
- The last week or so, I’ve been sick as can be. That’s made things quite awful as I’ve barely been near a computer.
So, here I am now. A day late and trying to catch up to make this a wonderful experience, still. And it will be. Oh yes, it will be.
Anyway, this month’s fantastic theme was signs. This could be interpreted in many ways, but as a fan of actual signs, I went forth with the plan where I’d be using those…
… and of course I can’t find a couple shots I took.
No worries. On a weekend trip to Massachusetts for a geocaching event, I got some interesting signs. It seems, however, that I was mixing last month’s theme (bridges) with this month’s theme as I visited eight covered bridges on this trip and they often have some really interesting signs.
So, without anymore blabbing… here’s my five for July.
1. Uneven Deck
I loved this sign as I’d never seen it before. I had it without the bridge, but thought the bridge gave it a bit better context. In Vermont.
The funny part about this sign is, of the four New York covered bridges we saw that day, three of them had people jumping off them. Look for a future blog post covering this.
3. Parking area
This sign is at a local pulloff parking area. I love the age and weathered look.
On our way to the big geocaching event… this is Tavis as we found a cache entering Vermont.
You can park here… but where to fish?
And that’s my five for the month of July. I hope you enjoyed the series.
If you took part this month, make sure you link up below. And for those who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment and visit so we can continue to grow this challenge.
Don’t forget, too, to come back Friday and see the theme for August!
NOTE: I also set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.

Glad you’re feeling better. I love that old sign. Looks like it has a bullet hole in it 😉

I didn’t do much travel this month, so I had to go a different route with the prompt. Love the covered bridge and that old, faded sign! Hope you’re still feeling well. I think summer colds may be worse than winter ones.

Ah, don’t be too hard on yourself, you came through with flying colors! This has been my favorite prompt so far ~

That old faded sign is brilliant, it looks like it’s bleeding. 🙂 You got some great photos of signs here, PJ, you make me wish I’d taken the time to actually go out and find some interesting signs.

We should all fail like this! Nice photos. Glad you are on the mend.

Good to see you’re on the mend. That one weathered sign looks like it would have been difficult to read even when it was brand new.

Nicely done, P.J., that gunshot looking sign is awesome. Reminding me that I’ve got to get back to Vermont for some hiking this year.
