You probably know that I like such 'urban details' a lot. A vey nice catch with a cool perspective.

i love it! a sign you're in kansas is that the sign has been used for target practice!

@grant: Rural areas in California tend to get signs shot at, too - though it seems more frequent in the deep south and the central plains.

Anthony Lambert from Germany

A sign of the times....? Will we see any shots from Santa Monica?

4 Dec 2008 11:32pm

@Observing: Well, Mike - I hadn't planned anything specific to Santa Monica - but hey - I'll take requests from the West Cheshire Shooter. Santa Monica images are now scheduled for December 16 -17-18. I hope to see you then.

Lot's of people have anger

5 Dec 2008 3:26pm

@sherri: You'd see very little anger here on whole - just lots of young folks - many with no fixed address - and the age-old attitudes against authority. Skate on...

willow from Chelsea, United States

Great perspective and I have to admit that I did snicker a bit at seeing all the stickers.
