Cee’s challenge this week was for storefront signs. Here are a few I’ve been saving for a special occasion that seem to fit as well as some I’ve very recently taken. Lately I’ve been lucking out on the prompts. It seems as soon as I take a number of photos of a certain topic, the prompt the next day fits it to a “T.” Thanks for reading my mind this time, Cee. These will look better if you click on them to enlarge them. The guy in the big snowdrift is my dad after the big snow of ’53.
This is a scene from a dry lake bed that stretches for many miles on either side of the road that leads from Ajijic to La Manzanilla. During part of the year, the lake bed might be filled with water, although it is very shallow. At other times, it is dry and frequent dust devils and small tornadoes raise the dust in twisting columns. I’ve driven through it literally surrounded by dozens of these little twisters. This sign, “Con Tolvanera, Encienda Sus Luces” means “During Dust Storms, Turn on Your Lights.” I don’t know why the picture tickles my fancy, but it does. So, it’s my oddball for today.
