Blockin’ up the scenery, breakin’ my mind.

For this week Thematic Photographic is exploring “signs that make us wonder”.  If you are interested in joining in or just viewing all the different takes on this theme, just click on the banner at the bottom.  Otherwise, here are mine.
I don’t know whose butt it is, but it’s arriving at 4:25 and leaving at 6:15 PM.
This sign made me wonder “Ya think?”  (That drain at the bottom of the picture is in the road.)
I wonder, I wonder.  Why must every sign in the western states be littered with bullet holes?
Makes you wonder, is it missing an e, or is there just an extra n?  And if it’s the latter, why would the Red Cross be collecting them for the Big Apple? (This was a sign some of my students made for the victims of 9-11).
Ya gotta wonder, what is so interesting out there that it’s worth braving snakes and scorpions?

Oh very cool Max, my head is still spinning! Where ever did you get the airline one? Too funny! I was amazed with the high water photo since you put it up as your header...as for snakes...on planes off of planes ..snakes anywhere...not so much where I want to be...unless they are under complete control while being held by someone with snake savvy!

Wow, what a collection! And so eclectic - snakes, pennises, Butts,drains, bullet holes... you've been saving these up, haven't you?

Karen - That was actually a bus schedule at the downtown Salt Lake depot. I always thought it was Butte, Montana, but then again I also didn't realize there was a city in Oregon called Portlan. As for the snakes, they were out in the wild, at the rest stop on I-80 about 40 miles west of the Utah/Nevada state line. Guess I shoulda mentioned where they were taken.

2. - The pond at Sugarhouse Park, right by my house.
3. - On the shore of the Great Salt Lake, directly west of the city by the same name.
4. - In my classroom at my second school.
Alexia - Yeah, got a little bit of everything going there. You're right, I had to do a bit of digging to get them. The high water one is pretty recent, but the rest go all the way back to 2001.

Great take on the theme. They must have missed the butterflies when shooting at the sign.

Love the Sugarhouse Park one!
But you've got to add in those bathroom signs from your old school. Those were awesome!

Max said...

Writer - Yeah, I thought of those, I'm still looking for a particular one, when I find it I'll post it.

Great collection here. The Pennis one had to stop folks in their tracks!
