Theme Day: Bright Colors

Today, August 1, 2010, is Theme Day across the CDPB (CityDailyPhotoBlog) community. Route 1 runs from Key West, Florida north to Fort Kent, Maine, at the Canadian border- a distance of 3, 800 miles. On Tuesday past, we pulled out of our driveway about 9 AM, got coffees and gas and set off on our 'adventure'. Our destination for the day was Belfast, but we stopped quite a few times along the way. Here, we pulled over in Wiscasset after this banner caught E- eye, and I took this photo. Remember my theory about 'open signs' in front of stores, restaurants(especially restaurants), shops, offices etc. Do you REALLY want to eat at a restaurant that has to advertise that it's open? Think about it. Over the next few days, I'm going to post a few images from our 'adventure' DownEast. Enjoy the trip!

  1. Wouldn't you love to turn back time, say 30 years, and take route 1 from start to finish?

  3. Cool, colorful banner. I don't have a problem with a restaurant advertising that it is open...and the colors here certainly catch the eye making me think it might be a fun place to eat.

    We've taken Route 1 through Florida many times and have some photos from the end of the road in Key West...fun times!

  4. I love these bright colors instead of the plain, old, "open", sign.

  5. Unique 'open' sign. I like your observation about 'open' signs! I just look for a restaurant with a lot of cars in the parking lot. Translation: they're open for business -- and people like going there, so the food must be good. Hope you had a nice adventure.

  6. I love a road trip! And I don't mind an "Open" sign. You can't always tell, especially if the parking lot is out back...

  7. I like that sign a lot more than the boring 'open flags'.

  16. You certainly fill the bill with this photo. God question about Open signs. I'd not thought of it but have never seen it on restaurants around here other than a tiny sign saying when they are closed!
