I first saw this sign years ago in Germany. I thought it was for the bathroom. Here it is in full context:
They are changing the numbers of all the buildings in a complex we frequent. It is confusing. Perhaps the multi-colored chalk scribbles on the sidewalk are a clue to the new-building numberers about which numbers go to which buildings.
I like the white on black of this sign. I also like the white-filled ‘O’ and ‘P’ that indicate failure of the ‘O’ and ‘P’ stencils. The sign itself was so long, it took up 3 spaces in my camera. If I were a little taller, I could have squared up the trapezoidal look of […]
I saw this icon when I was at the hospital the other day. It was on some kind of vinyl material, covering a little nook in the hallway. Presumably, the emergency equipment was behind this curtain. This icon clearly summarizes the use of the going-down-the-stairs equipment. It’s quite good, in fact. I hope that the […]
I could not resist putting myself in this snapshot. To tell the truth, it was nearly impossible to keep the camera shadow out of the shot.

I keep seeing Mondrian’s work everywhere I go. I came across the rare Mondrian 300 CRY (an emotional work), just today. Here are some of the others I have found: Mondrian 300, Mondrian 002 OXY, Mondrian 240, Found Art, More Found Art.
I almost left the doctor’s office without taking a picture of the sign. It’s not the worst door instruction sign I ever saw. The worst one read: “Keep Door Closed at All Times.” I’m on the lookout to photograph that one if I ever see it again. This one almost qualifies to be entered into […]
This isn’t a sign one sees every day, as a general rule:
