Photo challenge :: I saw the sign

scrapbooking photo challenge

Okay, apologies for getting early nineties electropop in your head. I couldn’t help it. At least I’m not challenging you to photograph yourself dancing. Not right now, anyway.

Your challenge is to take and post a photograph of one or more signs! Just one on a country lane or an overload of signs in the city – your subject matter is up to you, of course!

Post your image on Flickr, on your blog or in another online photo gallery. Leave a link to it in the comments on this post to be entered.

One winner will be randomly chosen to win a Keep Calm and Snap On print from the Keep Calm Etsy shop.

Please see this post for all the deadlines and details about this weekend.

Keep your eyes open — you never know when you’ll see a sign of good things to come!

    How about this for a sign.I have a sign by the same artist in my kitchen saying “I love homemade strawberry jam“all made out of driftwood.I had my entire kitchen designed around it!
    I was excited to discover this one outside a shop in Norfolk.
