Labor Day weekend has been hot and humid here in Virginia. I didn't want to stay cooped up in the house with the air-conditioner blasting, so I hit the road and headed to Culpeper and on down Route 29, Seminole Trail toward Ruckersville. I packed my lunch and water bottle and stopped along the way to explore and take pictures.
A few more signs to add to my personal project.
Taking these kinds of pictures is more difficult than it might appear. It's a challenge to assess the light, find the best perspective and make decisions as to whether context adds to the photograph or takes away from it.
And sometimes a sign isn't really a sign, but a symbol. I pass this statue of a horse, perched high on a pole, in front of Saddlery Liquidators near Madison on Route 29.
I can't explain it, but this picture of the horse cracks me up. I laughed out loud at every single version of the picture. Maybe it's because I had to stand on the downside of a steep bank alongside a busy highway to take the pictures. Drivers kept honking their horns. I wasn't sure if they were saying Hi or warning me to exercise caution or just irritated by my presence.
We've eaten here many times over the years. Diner food at it's best.
But if you're going to eat at Frost Cafe, bring cash 'cause that's all they take.
