A Photo

| Jun 1, 2009

I told you it was a sign!

So I was just driving down the street about a block from my house when I spotted this sign in front of a shop. I don't know how long it's been there, but I'd never noticed it before this past week.

I know it's nothing dramatic or beautiful, but I think it's significant. Signs are important, as my sister recently pointed out in one of her posts.

I'm not one who looks for signs, or presages, to tell me that what I'm doing is the right or wrong thing, but when I saw this sign I felt it was telling me that this photoblog just might be the inspiration I was seeking.

Now it's your turn. If you'd like to share a photo, post a link in the comments section. I can't wait to see what you've done.

I was wondering where you got your new blog header! I love it. I can't see all of the post since I am at school, but I will get back to you when I get home.

Thanks for the inspiration and I hope you find your mojo and passion again for photos and journalism!!

I might send you something different. I don't know.

Hi there Andre! I posted a link to this site on my blog yesterday - and also informed my son... he really likes to play with his camera! I think you give a lot of people inspiration to "start clicking". I myself very much like this idea, and I like your "sign" pic (I'm into alphabeths a bit myself - graphical) and I do hope you get a lot of respons!

It's called serendipity. I take it as a sign too. I'm happy to be coming along for the ride.

Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm going to look for my A photo tomorrow.

Great pictures! Peggy, I love the giant lizard. I feel like Newman in Jurassic Park (I know his name wasn't Newman in this movie).

Andre Rodriguez said...

Good ones, sis. Must be a sign. I hate gas pumps that make noise. The one down the street makes beeping noises that I'm sure could shatter an eardrum.

It's not about being good. It's about having fun and stimulating the mind.

Hello Andre,
Found out about your site from Peggy's blog! I'll look for an A and B photo and have to learn how to link in the comments. Only been blogging since January!!

I'll post your blog site on mine!

Thanks, I love photos!

Since my name starts with A I felt that a self portrait was in need. Thanks for the challenge!


BlessedinTexas said...

Here is mine for A - I hope I am doing this right?



Andre Rodriguez said...

Carrie, you guys have your own plane? How cool. I'm jealous.

Adriann, self portraits are always fun.

Diana, it looks like you've loaded your photo to flickr, but you've copied the wrong link. Try it again and let me know if you need help.

Almost time for the B photos. Can't wait to see them.

I was late with my A-photo (left a comment in the June 8 post) but I'll leave the link here too, to keep it systematic!
