Challenge #172 - Signs

First: ffenc1, Great shot! I love the B&W! Just an all around great shot! Good job!

Second: Boutty, At first I thought this was an actual ad out of a magazine! I really like the color and the gradient from blue to white.

Third: Car, I love the subject! It kind of reminded me of the movies. I also really enjoyed the angle. It was also an excellent take on the theme. Good work!

"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign!" Signs are all over the place these days. From advertisements to traffic signs to the neon of Vegas and even unwritten ones, signs dominate our field of view. So let's see some pictures of them! The only rule is there must be some sort of sign, not necessarily written or physical, in the picture.

_______________
