My name is Laura, and I photograph welcome signs as a hobby.  (This sounds sort of AA-ish, and often I do think of it as a sickness.)  I have hundreds of photos that I have collected over the past five years, and finally followed through on starting this blog in the summer of 2010.  Welcome signs provide unique insight into the heart and soul of a village, town, city, region, state, country.  This site chronciles my adventures through photographs and stories of the communities that welcome people to their borders each and every day.

Unless otherwise noted, all photographs on this site are my work.  The images are copyrighted and cannot be used without my permission.  I primarily use a Nikon D80, but from time-to-time use my handy Canon PowerShot A620.
