Great shots! I do the same thing and my family thinks I'm crazy but the visual clue helps me remember things and organize my photos.


I take a lot of title shots too. I find that I get a lot of weird looks when I do it though. People quite often wonder why you want a picture of something as plain as a "Welcome to" sign or the room number of your hotel.
Really like the "State of Michigan" carving though. Great looking header.

Lisa-The visual cues really do help me organize things and remember what the heck some things are :lol:

Steve-I've had more than my share of strange looks, too. I've been taking these so long, those looks barely register with me, though.


Nice shots! I love getting photos of signage in general. :) Take pics of street signs, buildings, town names so I know where I've been... definitely helps with note taking.
