Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign

Kate Flora: As part of personally carrying out my oft repeated exhortation to writers to pay attention to the world, I tend to take a lot of pictures. One of my favorite things to photograph is signs. All kinds of signs. Since this week I am on a cruise ship somewhere along the coast of Italy, I am going to skip a lot of text in favor of a collection of these signs. Maybe you have some signs you’d like to share as well?

These signs are from the Czech Republic, Amsterdam, India, California, Germany, San Francisco, the Berkshires, Maine, etc. They are from store windows, street signs, lamp posts, and parks. There are signs everywhere and many of them are amusing or inspiring. Sweety’s Tattoos will appear in the next Joe Burgess mystery.

    Love these..the “girly” things made me laugh out loud. Please post more when you have them.

  2. Cool!. Ever see the governmental oxymoron sign at the intersection of Rt. 1 & 27 in Wiscasset? It says “No signs allowed here.”

    Oh my! Copied the dog/beer/years and girly things. (And think the girly sign will work better in all toilets from now on.) Thanks! these were great. Have saved a sign I saw to put in my novel. It was supposed to read “Pass at Own Risk.” But after a lot of shotgun attention, now reads, “Ass at (pellet pock marks) Risk. But now I will look harder after this post….for good tings! Thanks.
