Some Serious Signage


This past Saturday, Matt and I spent the afternoon traipsing around our new neighborhood exploring it's hidden delights. Over the past few weeks we've noticed this city has an over-abundance of classic, old signs, in various stages of deterioration. We couldn't let another day go by without capturing some of them on film (uhm...digital film, that is). Most of these were taken on El Cajon Blvd, a street that begins out where we live in the 'burbs and meanders all the way to downtown. If the fancy strikes you, you can peruse our findings on Matt's flickr site. Enjoy!



Definitely my favorite sign of the day. Is one elf ruining the cloth and the other one patching it up? Any theories?

Great pics on Flickr...but I do have one question. Is that blue sky for REAL?! Amazing.

Yes, isn't it gorgeous! Gotta say I miss the rain, but overall I can't complain. Ooh, that rhymed nicely!

It looks like one is holding a giant cigarette and burning a whole into the cloth while the other one is trying sew it up, or they're having a dual with a cigarette and a needle. On Guard!
