National Park Signs.

Compared to the photographs of restrooms I showed yesterday, these photos of National Park signs make for perhaps a more normal series on the mundane side of travel and tourism. Sometimes I liked the signs for how they added a layer of visual meaning through which to interpret the site, like at the Grand Canyon; sometimes I liked the unusual iconography, like at the Bayon at Angkor; other times I was just struck by an odd phrase, like at the Valley of the Kings, or at Mlilwane Park in Swaziland.

Pictured (from top): ‘Grand Canyon Vista’ at Grand Canyon NP, Arizona, US; ‘No sitting on Balustrade’ at the Bayon at Angkor, Cambodia; ‘Look at the Glory of the Ancient’ at Valley of the Kings, Luxor, Egypt; ‘Fish Poaching is Stricly Prohibited/ Keep Away from Waters Edge, Crocodiles!’ at Mlilwane, Swaziland; ‘No Visitors Beyond this Point’ at Great Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe.
