So Many Signs, So Little Time

October has been a month of signs at Pairings, exploring the themes of art + meanings within our everyday surroundings. The inspiration came to me from a one-word theme: signs. Just one word, yes. But mighty in its interpretation. Here’s a roundup of the signs you may have missed, and their meanings. To follow the signs, just click the title, or the photograph.

Landmarks We Have Loved and Lost

As we come to the end of the signs, my observation echoes the title of this roundup: So many signs, and so little time to photograph them all. Maybe that’s some kind of sign. 

Have you ever followed a sign that led you backwards?

When I’m not in Austin, Texas, I’m frequently shooting other meaningful things, from the today and yesterday, but not tomorrow (yet). You’ll find more in my Time Travels, HERE.
