Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

Making photographs of signs may be the best reason ever, to carry a camera. See why.
Mary and I are always on the hunt for old signs, especially along Route 66 in California.
When ever we drive through a small town, we look for these.
Neon signs are especially fun. See our blog on how to make good photos of neon signs.
We think that you can take a lot more liberty with style and color with signs. We tend to saturate the color ones a lot and like black and white. In a pinch, we love to use Snapseed.
As I stated last week, don’t just carry a cell phone camera. Take your point and shoot where ever you go and you will find great signs everywhere.
