Street Signs with Deeper Meanings
I am exploring street signs. I am interested in this because they aren't the most interesting things but the photographer can make the picture interesting so it is a challenge.
I took the first photograph, and you can see a sign that says "Do Not Enter". I know that the sign isn't usually green but with the help of Photoshop I was able to adjust the color. My interpretation of this photograph is that this sign tells about the street or building behind it because it is off limits.
It has been said that one image is worth a thousand words. This could be true about this photograph because it tells you an important rule but in a different color. It reflects my theme in that I want to take pictures of street signs that tell information and may have deeper meanings.
One thing that I know about street signs is that they are everywhere. One thing that I wonder about is how many people pay attention to them and how would life be different without them. This makes me think of why it is important for me to take pictures of them and show the world what street signs do for us.
The second image was created by aspendjian and I found it at http://www.flickr.com/photos/42621202@N05/3983766430/ . In this image, I see signs that tell me where this photo was taken and I can tell it was taken in the evening. I know that because the background is dark but not dark enough to be considered night time. My interpretation of this image is that the photo can tell you a lot about where this is in NYC.
The second image relates to my photograph because it is a similar idea. As I look at this and other images, my next image will be more striking because I plan to incorporate a better background in my photo. If I were to look up some information about street signs, I would like to know more about all the different kinds in NYC and all over the world.
Since you are reading this post, I would like to ask you "Have you ever wondered what a street sign meant?"
