All the directions

So. Much. Signage.

And also, check out that brown haze down toward the horizon – that’s a minor dust storm, which I point out only to those of you who are unfortunate enough to have to live somewhere that dust storms don’t occur. You are really missing out.

Bethel, coming and going

Here’s a two-way sign for a little country church on top of a hill.

Also: it did require a u-turn to get back to it. And also: it took me about five miles of driving to decide that I didn’t want to pass up a chance to photograph the church (and sign). Sometimes I make a u-turn decision right away, and other times it takes a few minutes to decide. And also, one more time: I can’t recall a time that I’ve ever made a u-turn, gotten back to the place, and decided that it wasn’t worth a photograph after all.

Suspension of Disbelief

That sign – there was just something about the way the two vacant rectangles seemed to shore up the cross that I found compelling, visually and philosophically.

Just checking in

Every few years I remember to drive out by my favorite sign of all time. One of these days I will have waited too long to get one more photo, though, and that will be a sad discovery.

When the one thing implies the other

I know. I know that the name of the cemetery was “Graves.” But that sign was still hilarious – so hilarious, in fact, that it required the Patient Spouse to make a u-turn so I could get the shot. (And, then another u-turn to head us back in the right direction. It’s our usual path when we travel.)
