Take a Number

November 19, 2013



My other weird Flickr collection is numbers. I take photos of numbers from 1-2525 (hey, you have to draw the line somewhere or else it’s Infinity and Beyond!). I especially like non-standard numbers – hand-drawn, painted or carved – because they’re so rare. Almost everything is standardized and mechanically produced. The 15 above is my most recent find.


This 3 is what you get when you place an order at a coffee house in Munising, Michigan. More fun than a pager!


Fire truck, of course. Love the color scheme. YES, I CAN SEE YOU!9291454535_e09d7ddecf_z

My neighbor is a welder. Can you tell from his gate?


This one is standard, but sometimes you just can’t resist a cool photo.

The rest are here.

      I think it’s fun to see them all together in my flickr set.

    I have long wondered what these were about. Good to know!
