Monochrome Monday #33: Waiting For A Sign


"Blue Ridge Parkway"
Blue Ridge Parkway - February 2001 (Click to embiggen)


I spotted this empty signpost during a stop along the Blue Ridge Parkway in 2001. I don't know exactly what drew me to it, but there was something interesting about the figure it cut against the clear sky that I apparently thought was worth shooting. There's not much more to tell about it than that.Violence Unsilenced

I'm sure there's a sign there now that reads, "Mojo was here."
I just know it!

It would cross my mind, to think what it was there for originally...
I am very fond of wrought iron angles and lines.....:-)

Now that is a bold direct image.

It can be considered now as classic photo.

This is a great photo but your title for it really grabbed me. I love the play on words.

Robin said...

Great title.

To me, it looks like a spear or an arrow thrusting into the frame.

the composition in mono enhances the starkness...
lovely!

Aileni said...

Very effective.
I have no plans to move yet again - believe me the last move really hurt.

Shadow said...

it looks to me like a weapon vampires would use...

It made a nice piece of stark nakedness.

Not so sure that it's waiting for a sign, I think the wind blew one away! :)

Looks like it is waiting for a sign that says 'dangerous sign holder'. It looks a bit lethal just sticking out there.
