Theme Day: "No . . ." signs

The first of the month and the City Daily Photo has elected for the Theme Day: No [fill in the blank] signs. You know the signs, "No Parking" "No Trespassing" something along those lines. Well, I went to great lengths for my sign. I went to the end of the road in Ely, Minnesota. Essentially, I went to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and snapped a shot of the sign in the photo. I wanted something different, something no one else would have, and something that wasn't easy to obtain. Granted, the timing was perfect as I had planned a trip to the BWCA in June and I knew ahead of time July's theme day. See some of my favorite BWCA photos I've taken.

Stop by the other cities participating in the July Theme Day via the links below the photo. Do remember that there are timezone differences between the other cities. Or you can head over to the portal page to see a thumbnail view of blogs that have posted their corner store photo.

Hey hey Boo Boo! Mr. Ranger Sir says don't feed the bears! :-)
Scariest night I ever spent was in a pup tent that we had unknowingly pitched along a natural path between a river and a meadow. Every animal known to man went past the front fly, including several bears. I thought for sure that odor part was going to get me eaten alive, but have lived to tell the tale.
Fun sign, Slinger!

Hi ,

The bees are back in Brookville, Ohio. I hope for the rest of the year at least. I even got one on my Better Blog Writing post today. LOL

I see you found an adorable No sign for our July Theme Day. That would be one sign I would want to pay attention to.

Isn't it almost funny to think of adult people scurrying around their communities taking pictures of signs. And if somebody had asked what that is all about and you said a sign with "no" on it, they might... well. It is kind of funny.

Well, there's some practical advice, I'd say. People + animals = opportunity for stupidity.

Happy Theme Day!
