The wild consumes this Wild and Scenic sign on the coast.
Yet another beautiful "Photo By Dan." The soft colors of the leaves and branches, the harshness of the sign. The conveying of the passage of time, the conflict of nature and metal -- the way that promoting "scenic" takes away from scenic. I love the eye on this guy.

Whatever did happen to that Sign Bandit?

Good question. He wouldn't be going after signs like this one anyway -- legally placed onces, though needless. It's all those illegally placed signs -- the ones on the sides of roads or our landscape, commercial and political.
Problem is, they're "protected" too -- and he was arrested, as was reported, when e removed some. Even illegally placed political signs are "protected" under our laws. Go figure.
I've introduced a number of bills to change that -- to declare signs illegally placed as "litter," allowing anyone to clean 'em up, but those bills been defeated even by Democratic legislatures. We like our signs.
Last time I saw the Mr. Sign Bandit was at a public hearing on one of my bills. He's still one of my heroes, for doing the right thing -- despite the consequences.
