LETTERS OR NUMBERS: CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letters or Numbers

My husband takes pictures of signs and other posts. He says it’s a carryover from shooting news stories. If you shot a sign which said where you were, it was easier to remember, especially because he often shot multiple stories in a single day.

I’ve sort of picked up the habit, so now I shoot signs and bronze monuments too.

The one and only railroad bridge in town. Numbers on the orange sign but until I get my new glasses, can’t read it!

Capron’s memorial bronze by the Mumford River – 1791 – 1859

Our town’s very fancy crossing sign! Photo: Garry Armstrong – One fancy sign for a very simple crossing. Takes longer to read the sign than cross the street. There’s an 8 in the sign if you look for it.

Take a rock at Mumford Dam and give one to a friend!

Routes 16, 122 and 146– Meanwhile, vote for what? Photo: Garry Armstrong

  2. That’s a good idea, taking pictures of a sign with each shoot.
    I thought the same thing about the crossing sign before I read your caption. By the time you’ve read it, you’ve missed your chance!

    • There is only ONE traffic light in town, just before you leave the village. Otherwise, you wait for traffic to clear and walk across. Assuming there IS traffic and there often isn’t. I looked it up and it turns out the sign was only $18 so I guess they figured it was a bargain and would spruce up the town (?).

    • Garry used to cover multiple stories per day and racing from story to story, it was easy to forget which footage went with each story, so he always got (at the start) a “placement” shot. That way, when he went to editing later, he could find each segment AND know where he was (he sometimes forgot where he was and once he forgot his own name).

  5. Signs are a great help for forgetfulness and they are unique. When I take a photo of a plant or flower at the store i often take a photo of the label to remember what it actually was.
