When I look at old photos, I love seeing the landscape, buildings, and cars as much as the people. It's why I don't over-crop my photos most of the time. I think it's important to leave all those background details in there. It's also why I am scrapping these pics that I took for a challenge in January 2010. Probably, many people wouldn't consider these photos to be scrap-worthy, but I think it will be interesting to look back at these in the future for comparison since these are locations that I drive through most days of my life.
Journaling says: For the Mini Challenge, "5 Stops," in my Photo of the Day group, I chose to take photos of 5 different literal "Stop" signals I saw on the way to and from school this morning. I wonder if these intersections will still look the same in 20 years...
1 Adderly Lane & Winchester Rd - Stop Sign
2 Oak Spring Rd - Bus Stop
3 Rte. 176 & Lamb's Farm - Stoplight
4 Winchester Rd & Butterfield Rd - Don't Walk
5 Winchester Rd & US 45 - Railroad Crossing
This is my example for my August Four Categories Challenge - Category Four ~ Theme: Travel. The twist is to include an arrow, road sign, license plate, or vehicle embellie on the LO.
This is for a VLB Challenge to use chevrons on a LO.
I used an April 2013 PageMap. I cut the road signs and arrows with the Going Places cart on my Cricut and the 'scenic route' piece with Graphically Speaking. I cut the large wavy arrow near the bottom out of a scrap of an old road map. I outlined the photos with a Sharpie
