Signing off

Rob's Foods

I love urban signs. I post some on my blog as you know and have more on my Flickr site. To me the hand-painted ones have so much character, especially when something goes worng, oops, I mean wrong. I was editing this photo of a roadside sign when I realized the painter had inverted the letters on the word "small." Too funny! Now I need to go back when there are fewer shadows and take a better shot. In Chicago, we may lack for wildlife, mountains and wilderness in general but the urban delights sometimes make up for it.

P.S. I really need to work on the margins on my blog. It cuts off the edges of all my landscape-oriented photos. Why try to take a nice shot only to have it maimed on the web? So much to do, so little time. Happy Wednesday!

You can fix the problem of your photos being cut off by not posting them from Flickr (using the Blog This link on the photo page). All I do is choose the size I want to post from Flickr, then copy the URL given on that photo's chosen size page, and paste it as a link on Blogger's "add photo" feature.

I hope that makes sense!

I love the small mess up. Loving your city shots....and yeah, your margins are kind of funky.
