Photo Challenge #10 - SIGNS

I don't have much to offer for this week's photo challenge, but this one did strike us funny! On our way, walking to the street dance downtown on Friday night we came upon this street sign. Now we've lived in Olathe for more than 10 years, and early on I must have seen these signs along "Main Street" and thought that they were funny, but after so many years, I just don't see it anymore! Dusty's daughter, Lori, was with us all weekend.....she had come up from Denver for the Corn Festival, and she was the one who pointed out the sign! You see, even though Olathe is a very small town the local government often has trouble agreeing on things. Apparently, this was one such situation! They couldn't agree on whether it should be "4th Street" or "Main Street", so they named it both!!

The Shot That Got Away!!!
Right after taking the above shot, we walked passed a house with a hummingbird feeder hanging in front. Right next to the feeder was a "No Tresspassing" sign. As we walked passed, a hummingbird flew away from the feeder. If I only could have gotten a picture of the bird, the feeder and the sign together that would have been classic, but I just wasn't fast enough!! Oh well, maybe next time!!

love that photo Lenore....great light. I thought Australia was the only place where a road changed name even though you are still on the same path. Too funny

LOL...well that is one way to solve a dispute...give in and keep both names!! Love how the light caused the sign to glow and the evening sky in the background...poor hummingbird can't read can he, lol...good luck next time!!
