This past week someone took two political lawn signs I posted at the end of my driveway and tossed them in the woods. It annoyed me, no it really pissed me off. Whether or not you agree or disagree with my candidate, I have the right to show my support by displaying a lawn sign on my property.
By removing my lawn sign did you think I'll change my opinion? Oh, look my lawn signs are gone I'll have to vote the other way.
Do you think that by removing lawn signs other voters are swayed? You must believe that people vote based on the number of lawn signs they see. What, if they don't see my lawn signs maybe your candidate wins another vote.
Or is it that you just don't believe your candidate is strong enough on the issues and people shouldn't be aware there's another person running for their seat.
The truth of the matter is I too hate lawn signs. Mostly because people put them along highways and roadsides, nowhere near their homes.
I think lawn signs should be restricted to individual lawns and any found on any municipal property should be discarded as soon as it is seen. After all, aren't they for supporters to show their support.
When you see a lawn sign in the middle of a divided highway what's that say? It tells me that a particular candidate doesn't have a lot of supporters or they aren't very good money managers and purchased too many signs. Not too good either way.
Sorry for venting about my lawn signs. But is my right to show my support if I desire.
Back to the blog, today's photo is of the ornamental grass by my back door, made with the Canon 5d and processed with ACR. I love making images of this plant.
