Recently I submitted some images at the Union League Club of Chicago's Annual 2013 Juried Photography Competition. I won first prizes for a cityscape and a black & white as well as a second prize for a nature scene along with a couple of honorable mentions. I entered about 20 images overall in several categories competing with some 50 photographers and over 300 images. I entered the "Signs" Category with a couple of images just for the fun of it. "Lo and behold," this one taken while out doing some street photography last year got a first prize in the Sign Category.

The sign is an advertisement for a local college in Milwaukee set in juxtaposition to the nearby Tattoo parlor. it was a grab shot while waiting for the light to change at a street corner.

It offers in my mind and I guess the judges a little humor about your college age generation.

It was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7000, shutter priority, 50mm equivalent focal length, ISO 100, f/6.3, 1/800s.
