I love reading bumper stickers and signs as I drive around the countryside.

Jay Maisel always tells his workshop attendees that they must cultivate the habit of ALWAYS carrying a camera with them, as they will never know what life might send them.


This is one reason I try to always remember my camera. I found several recently.

A drive by shooting, in traffic in my car, in Bloomington. Tells a story. Shot one handed while moving with my P&S - can you tell??:D :D

On a pickup truck - Is this vet for or against the president?

I found this one in my accountants parking lot. It kind of makes me a little nervous, but I did find it funny, nonetheless. I am sure some folks will not see the humor in driving around with this on your tailgate.

I encourage other folks to add their collection of bumper stickers and signs that deserve to be seen more than one time right here in this thread:thumb

    Despite the implication, lol3.gif

    I love a good bumper sticker myself, but I never think to photograph them (usually as my car is moving, too). Gotta give this a shot!

    Great collection, Jim!

    I'm guessing from the NRA sticker that the owner might not have been trying to be funny.

    Good work, Jim.

    OK, I'll bite:

    Pathfinder, Why would this make you nervous? Also, why would an NRA sticker negate humor?

    I must have misinterpreted that one.. I read it as foreign aid, not bombing. Maybe it's my "Canadian" showing.

    How about mis-spelled signs in state parks or in public buildings?

    Why do we think there is an problem with education in America? The small sticker over the price windows does have diesel spelled correctly, fortunately.

    Hand written signs always seem to tell some kind of story.. some are truly heartwrending

    702229_pgDD3-L-1.jpg

    And what is it about pick up truck drivers anyway? ( I confess, I drive a pick up also, but I do not have bumper stickers yet - Just a Smugmug smiley face! )

    278601344_6FAFh-XL.jpg

    Pay attention to the sentiment stated twice in a closer look..

    No he has a 17" LCD monitor playing a video on his chest & he is hooked up to a battery. I watched him for a while & the bart police walked up & spoke with him & then they went & got the coppers.

    You really should be aware of the possible outcomes from hooking yourself up like that to a battery in a public place of late.

    He was outside Mcdonalds corp office or similar from memory.

    Hi there Jim, I've never thought about photographing bumber stickers or funny signs, I must take more notice when I walk down town next time.

    Great Thread....... Gus's "Poop Sign" cracked me up rolleyes1.gif

    It is the purpose of life that each of us strives to become actually what he is potentially. We should be obsessed with stretching towards that goal through the world we inhabit.
