Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

Just in time for Valentine’s Day — though actually photographed in early February of last year — yet another sign from my unique neighbourhood:

Of course, I took patience.

Check out more “unique” photos at The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge and for more photos of the strange signs that I attract like toddlers attract sticky, click on the links below.

UPDATE:  Thanks to prompting from Fay at Fly on the Wall — who found a bajillion of these posters on Pinterest — I decided to look up the origin of these posters and found two good links: Lisa wrote about this back in May (Take What You Need Project – Vancouver), which resulted in the poster’s creator sharing the story of how it all began).

Comments

  1. love it!! so…I wonder what the ones that were taken said ;)

  2. I think I would have taken either Faith or Strength…

  3. Any idea of what was ripped off the sign before you took the picture?

  4. Oops…should have read the previous posts before adding my own.

    • No worries — I think it’s really cool that that thought immediately occurred to others and totally sailed right past me.

  5. I click on the Rick Astley link and now that song is going to go through my head all night!

    Courage please?

  7. Come to think of it…if I were to post this sign, I think I’d post it with a few options torn off. That way EVERYONE would be left wondering what they missed out in.

  8. I love this, it works n so many levels. I will take courage. I am considering retraining as a midwife. I need it :)

  9. Reblogged this on Ask Fay, Agony aunt extraordinaire and commented:
    Love this! What would you take and why?

  10. Love your take on the theme!

    • Thanks — it was one of those themes where almost everything did and didn’t fit, but this photo jumped out at me as soon as I saw it again.

    May I take COURAGE? Merci!

  12. inspiring!

  13. This is awesome!!!

  14. What a brilliant idea. Free to give, priceless to receive!

  15. What a lovely idea.

    • I thought so, too. Very seriously considering reprising it, if only for the one power pole actually located in our yard.

  16. I would have taken patience too.

  17. now, that is a very caring as well as unique neighborhood…well done.

  18. Awesome! Makes me want to put one out where I live…

  19. I love it! Thanks for sharing that picture, I’ll have to look into it.
