Signs of Desperation

Time flies when you're stressed out of your mind. This is something I realized today when I remembered that PJ's monthly photo blogging challenge was due yesterday. But better late than never, right? Only slightly panicked, I dove into my photo archive for the month, and tried to find some photos of Signs - the theme of the month. I found one. Sadly, this challenge calls for five photos, not one photo, so I had to get creative.

The first photo is from the greatest place in the world, New York City. I took it July 1st, at Times Square. I doubt there is any place quite as packed full of signs and billboards and people and attitude as this place. I love it.



Next, we have the first signs of fall. We've had a couple of cold weeks this month, and as a result, some of the trees have started to turn yellow and red. Little splashes of color in a sea of green.



Another sure sign that fall is on the way, is the fact that I've had to start carrying around my umbrella. And such a pretty umbrella it is. I wish it would rain every day.



Next up is Darth Vader, and yes I know, I'm really grasping at straws here, but the cats are definitely looking a little more furry these days, and I can only assume it's because fall is on the way and they need the extra insulation.



As an apology for the lousy photos above, here's one of an actual sign. This might be the most common road sign in Finland; dinner, 2,5 km ahead.


Go check out PJ's blog for more photos of signs. *

  1. You should have a picture of me in the pant's I'm wearing: a sign that I should eat more salads.

  3. Signs of Fall already?! We're just getting into the heat of summer here! My interpretation of the prompt is along similar lines. Love your Fall Foliage shot.

  7. In Finland, we never bake in our summer. Occasionally, we lightly simmer, but that's about it. ;)

  8. Thanks, Lisa. Fall arrives early in Finland, but I do think we'll get a couple more weeks of summer before that happens.. I hope. :)

  9. Hah! I think the image in the mirror says the same thing to me. ;)

  10. This is the first bit of baking we've done for many a year. Not sure we even simmered last year. Oh, wait! We did have one warm week ;)

  11. Hard to believe that fall is already on the way in your neck of the woods. We still have two more months where it will probably get over 100˚ (38˚ C) for several day each month.

  12. I love your dinner sign. And New York. And even your umbrella. But I don't love fall even when you make look all colourful, soft, and furry. Fall is just a week-long precursor to winter. Sigh.

  13. I miss NYC.


    The umbrella is awesome but where are all the umlauts? I thought you guys put umlauts everywhere.

  14. Fall? Why are you Finns rushing things? Here in Quebec we have two seasons: 10 months of winter and 2 months of road construction..

  15. Mr. VZ would surely intrepret the last sign as dinner, being the avid hunter that he is ~

  18. Thank you. :) Hope you're feeling better, honey!

  19. I think I'd actually prefer fall to 100-degree weather. ;)

  20. Sigh, indeed. Let's elope someplace nice and warm.

  21. We have a strict no-export policy regarding our umlauts. You're going to have to come collect your umlauts in person, I'm afraid. You know where to find me.

  22. It makes such a lovely dinner, too.

  23. You can have our fall, just tell Evil Twin to step away from my dinner.

  24. DARTH VADER! I love that name! Is that your cat? I think that a sign is a sign is a sign... perfect!
