Signs for All Occasions

Ooh, I love this topic! Signs are so diverse that I have an archive of sign photos!  If you wish to join in the fun, Nancy Merrill has A Photo a Week Challenge every Thursday; this week’s topic is Signs.

Signs can be informative…

…or funny!

Good sign! (Fire and Ice, Marengo)
In a restaurant in some small town in north central Illinois



Dale and I still laugh when we remember this sign we saw in Buzios in 2003!
Someone had translation trouble! Buzios, Brazil


On a corner near downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin



They can be thought provoking….

…or lend ambiance to a place, such as…

Mader’s German Restaurant, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Signs also convey social and political opinions:
