Red

Plus Read.

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Red or Read.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge but kept coming back to this image. It’s the Dollar Store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

I do wonder if anyone ever reads the signs other than the Dollar Store sign.

Does Anyone Read All These Signs?

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Store Front Signs.

On reading the prompt I thought of this dollar store in a local town. So many signs, one is standing, propped up against a store window. Presumably waiting to be hung up somewhere.

Too Much Snow for a Early Crop

Monochrome Monday travels back a week or so. I had gone for a walk around the neighborhood looking for items listed on the recent Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Treasure Hunt.

In the end I went with a photo of a yellow bicycle in the snow for that challenge rather than this amusing sign which was another item on the list. But I thought that the sign would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

Signs in the Snow

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: All Sorts of Signs.

I find both these signs amusing in the winter. I gave them both a spot colour treatment for a splash of colour in the snow.

This warning sign of a 90 degree bend on a local back road is slightly deceiving. If you turn right you head towards the nearest town. Turning left takes you onto a narrow, dead end gravel road that may or may not be passable without a 4×4 due to snow drifts. Some years it also gets washed out during the spring thaw.

These No Parking signs on a utility pole must be so people don’t park on the chest high snow bank.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Find Something Red

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Find Something Red.

One photo came to mind instantly, a freshly painted red post box in Faddiley, Cheshire, England. The chalked “Wet Paint” warning and the excess paint on the utility pole and hedge have always amused me.

The next photo that came to mind was this red Maple leaf on a Lichen covered boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula last autumn.

Then I thought about the giant red butterfly garden ornament I pass on some of my walks around the neighborhood.

Finally I thought about various red species, birds, berries and fruit and remembered this extreme closeup of a Raspberry.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Bottles

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Bottles.

I vaguely remembered seeing a Coca-Cola bottle on a garden shed on one of my walks testing various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera in the summer. So I decided to go for a walk to check the shed out.

Imagine my surprise when I found a variety of bottles on the shed.

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Signs.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Signs.

It’s 12 months since I photographed these EMPTY signs and I still find it amusing that some of my neighbours are letting our Black Bears know that there’s no garbage in the cans.

These are Bear resistant garbage cans bolted to a cement pad to stop the Bears rolling them over. And yes, I know that the signs aren’t really for the Bears. They wouldn’t be able to read the signs in the dark at night.
