Blue Monday: Signs of Blue

Blue Monday is hosted weekly by Smiling Sally.

please head on over to her blog.

I love taking snaps of old signs, especially old neon signs. And I love the turquoise blue in these shots of a sign I found while M and I were exploring one of the older parts of downtown San Antonio, during our recent trip to Texas. I'm not sure what sort of business it advertised – that "greatest cut" could mean a barbershop, I suppose. The building is a very old one, and it still has shops in it, but none of the original ones. I'm so glad they decided to keep the sign.

I really like the bright blue graffiti in this one, too.


  1. Love the blue, especially the old sign.

    Happy Blue Monday, Joy!

  2. Great shots.

    Family Bonding in the kitchen is my share for Blue Monday.

  3. Love that blue sign. Very retro. Happy Blue Monday.

  4. the sign is indeed interesting! it is an unusual one for a hairdressers, but I can't think of what else it could mean, either.

  5. Looks like a vintage sign, like it!
    Have a fun week!

  6. I also like the old neon sign, although the newer sign is definitely a bright blue.
