Hello everyone! Welcome to my random road sign gallery! You are welcome to give comments or suggestions on what should I do next!   :sombrero:

Anyway, to start this off, I am gonna link my best road sign picture here. This is a picture of a Interstate 75 road sign I like to share.

Just wanted to stop by and smash that follow button on your Flickr page!

I've been snapping photos of route markers since I was 14 and decided to collect every state highway marker in my home state by photographing it.  Now I'm trying to get all the Interstates and US routes nationwide.  ANYWAY, I love that you're getting started with this thing a lot of roadgeeks do: photographing route signage.  We don't really have a unified name for it yet--I've started to call it "routesnapping".  It seems like a lot of different people started doing this independently of each other, but there isn't a central website for collecting route marker photos, like there is for route clinching and county clinching.

I like a lot of your first photos! I learned a lot from looking at this thread of tips on taking nice-looking road sign photos, especially user @formulanone's advice.  I recommend this to anyone trying to get a better handle on making the sign photos look nice: https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=29483.msg2624177#msg2624177

Thank you so much for the support and the follow! I have been looking at the Formulanone's road sign advice, and I saw "Please of out your car carefully and make sure you are not blocking traffic." I was kind of stumped, because I do not go out of my car and take these pictures. I have a good friend who drives me around different sorts of Interstates and highways, and we love going on trips together. I am usually on the front seat taking pictures.

I kinda wanna show you how I do this, but I think some people on the forum use the same strategy.
First off, I get on either of my local Interstates, I-475 and I-75, hold out my phone and hold it very carefully. Then, I get to snapping. All kinds of exit signs. Every single one I can find. I love doing it. However, due to the shutter speed of my Pixel 3, some pictures end up blurry, and the windshield of the car is dirty  and my phone keeps on focusing on the crud on there. Gross. Some pictures end up good, and then I add filters on there to make it look pretty.

Anyway, thank you so much for following again and the suggestions and have a good day.
