november photo thread

Traveling for work next week so I’m posting this today….please don’t post to this thread until Tuesday Nov.1…..but DO post something ‘Small’ in the Oct thread

November’s topic is ‘a Sign’…whatever that means to you, literally or a metaphor. If not literal write something about the image to let us know the meaning.
Same rules as always…

changing again

You knew this was bound to happen. 1999 during my cross country + tour. Blankenship Rd., which is the back way towards Glacier National Park that avoids a shoulderless stretch of U.S. 2 near the town of Hungry Horse. The sign was gone when I rode there again 10 years later.

I caught this. I used to complain about the dumping near where I lived, that's what they did in return.

Hi! What are the rules? I only stumbled across this fine photo thread in the past week or so. Usually I lurk about Classic & Vintage. Touring. Maybe Frame Builders. A pit of Advocacy and Safety. Share my wealth of wisdom there....

Thanks!

The image has to be taken by the poster, only one image per person (you can change images before the end of the month) and you vote for the three that you like the most at the end of the month….but not for yourself.

just deleting or editing your first submission is the best way to submit a second image

Yes ... and I'll also add, post your photo so that we can see it here and don't have to go to a link to look for it.

First time I had seen this sign was today in a small park I pass by at least once a week out riding. It felt good being out with a film camera again, even if it was for testing a cheap P&S.

I don't think that sign has said anything less than "High" in the last decade.
