So lets see those signs especially if they are unique to where you live. Anything that is a sign is good to go.

 

Any thing that can take a photo is ok.

I have only seen the "Seniors Crossing" sign in a few areas of Toronto. The top sign on the Danforth between Main and Woodbine. The bottom sign is on Royal York just south of the Queensway.

Good pics :) , but, as a Chemist, I must protest... alcohol is a solvent, not a solution. A solution is a solute dissolved in a solvent :unsure: :wacko: :blink: .

Thanks, Peter :) The matter sign is also incorrect. The original quote had "...speed of light squared", this sign is missing "squared."

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

I remembered I had taken this photo on a walkabout in Nassau during a port stop on our first cruise. There is a very rich history of sportscar racing in the Bahamas. It was a very neat old building, however the port stop was on a Saturday so, unfortunately, it was closed. One day I hope to take in one of these events - maybe on another cruise port stop.

Scary, when you live in a Province were over half the people are mindless idiots.

20% are still voting Liberal after 15 years of pillaging the province.

37% are NDP.  What can I say. Because being bent over for 15 years wasn't enough.
