Time to Lighten Up a Little

It’s important to talk about wars and rumors of wars, but CS&W was originally about travel, travel writing and photography. So today, back to that.

Wherever we go we collect photos of fun, strange, unusual, bewildering, sometimes incomprehensible signs. Here are a few for your amusement, and there are over 450 in the Signs Gallery at EarthPhotos.com. Go ahead, have some fun.
