I saw a shop window today that had a digital display counting down to Christmas 2014 in 61 days 15 hours 29 minutes 15 seconds. While I’m sure the intended effect was to throw shoppers into a spending frenzy, it just made me wonder how many photos of numbers I had taken on my travels. Here are a few photos that I came up with. My favourite clock in downtown Seattle.
Washington Irving’s gravestone in a spooky little graveyard in New York’s Sleepy Hollow.
Travelling down Route 66 with my pal Sylvia, we couldn’t resist stopping at the midway point to get a shot of those iconic numbers. Just the sight of those two sixes next to each other makes me want to bust out on another road trip today!
I had a hard time finding photos for the number theme; apparently I don’t take that many photos with numerals in them. How about you? Are you up for some number crunching? If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

I’m counting on you! 😉
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. – Samuel Ullman
I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond. – Mae West
