So, this is kinda a weird collection. It’s not really a physical collection. I can’t really hold it in my hands. I don’t display it throughout my house like my other collections. It’s a collection of photographs. Photo’s of signs to be exact.
I don’t know exactly when I started collecting these. I really got into photography full on in highschool when I took my first photo class. I think a lot of the photos back then were of signs, and other random things. Then I started working in photo labs soon after, and the discounted processing made it so much easier to take photos of EVERYTHING.
I didn’t start putting all my sign photos into one spot until I started using Flickr, many years ago. I was able to categorize everything, and put like things together. I’m almost up to 500 signs so far. Some are local and a lot are from my, post mommy life, travels. I love going back and looking at them. They’re something so simple, and normal to our everyday life. To me they’re pretty, colorful and interesting.
If you would like to see my entire collection, just head on over to Flickr. I took a bit of a break from taking a lot of photos of inanimate objects when CT was born. I was more interested in taking pictures of her, plus we didn’t go out much. Now that we are taking more day trips, I think I may start adding to my collection again!
I’m also thinking once I hit 500 photos, I may have them all printed up in one of those Blurb books. I’m all about those things right now.
Do any of you have unconventional collections? I’d love to see them!!Pin It
