Day 24: POTD Roadside Attractions

You know how in rush hour there can be so many distractions from all the traffic on the interestate, and the road side billboards add to the sensory overload? Well, here's the ND version of that, just a little "signage" to help you keep from losing your direction!

Once again, shot from a car window at 75 miles an hour, on a foggy day, with a polarizing filter, on Auto mode. I used my 18-135 lens at 95 mm, ISO 800; f/9; exposure 1/200, wb cloudy.

And thank you for all the wonderful comments on my dog yesterday. This photo challenge really makes my day! You know it was a staged photo, or her glasses would have been on and the words would have been facing her, because that's the way she usually reads.

I wish I could get shots half as good as yours driving down the road going 75! You amaze me once again!

Christine said...

Mandy said...

That is so wonderful and profound. I love how much focus you got while driving. I am totally in awe.

How cool, and going 75!! The sign is so clear, great reminder.

Jen said...

Everyone should remember this! Great shot at 75!!!

Debbi said...

Another great photo, Angela! This is a great take on the theme. Too funny about your dog reading! :)

Becky said...

You crack me up about the dog! We are lucky in Maine to have a no-billboard law, but one like this wouldn't bother me much.

Margaret said...

Love that sign, and love the comment about your dog and her glasses. You're too funny!

Sharon said...

How perfect in today's world. Now if only enough of us can heed those words.

Mom2Drew said...

What a great little sign. I especially laugh because it's on the road and we all know how people can get behind the wheel....

Okay, LOL at the words being upside-down to the dog!!!
And I love the sign! :) Where in ND are you??

Nicole said...

Very nice, I love how it's so white and serene and that saying stands out clearly.

pat said...

Oh, all I can think of is the reaction of someone reading this sign in the midst of road rage! Hee hee!

HC said...

Its messages like these that make your day!!! Great shot ... I think if I was going 75 mph I would of lost my camera lol.

Gypsy Girl said...

You always have me laughing out loud when I read your POTD. Wow 75 mph.

HLIP said...

The sign is so unexpected there. I love it.

Somehow I missed your photo of the dog yesterday. Very clever. My animals would have eaten the letters......

Wow, from the car driving 75? I can't even get something that sharp sitting still (then again it sometimes seems like my 2 year old is moving at 75 mph). I love that billboard. We need some around here.

Liz said...

How the heck did you get that focus at 75mph? I am assuming you weren't driving. LOL
That sign is sweeeet, and something we all can probably use a little work on every now and then.
