Thematic Photography: Signs

I just want to tell Carmi over at WrittenInc that I have been waiting for this theme. Storing up. Here they are, my signs:

Election time is hard on a cat. Especially when he has to guard campaign signs from the enemy.

My daughter is a high school English teacher. This sign is her way of bringing humor to a seriously enforced dress code. Worth enlarging if necessary to read it.

Another daughter attended school in Chicago for a while. This Chicago Theater sign is the heat! Frankie Valli? Who knew he was still making the rounds?

When we told this little girl that she looked pretty, she smiled smugly and said, "I know. I'm a model."

This sign is my most valuable offering this week. No explanation needed!

Got a sign? Post it and let Carmi know.

Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor - that last picture absolutely did me in. I always appreciate when someone uses humor in creating a sign. When we laugh at ourselves, we display our true humanity.

You've covered such an incredible range with these. I love how each one was a vignette in and of itself. Just wonderful!
