"Use At Own Risk"

It goes without saying...

Billy pointed this "dock" out to me as we walked Back Harbour this morning. Surely it's someone's idea of a joke!
Haha, I'd say so..... Nice. :D

Looks unstable to me LOL! How sweet of your neighbors to have a special meal ready and waiting at home for you. How fortunate you are to have such dear friends :o)

Ha, I want to see the person who takes that seriously and tries to use it. I love the dark color of the water.
posted June 17th, 2010  
Great shot! You never know about people, maybe without the sign they run the risk of getting sued if someone got hurt.
posted June 17th, 2010  
too funny! strikes me as funny that the "use at own risk" sign is a cross...cause if you DO use it, you'd better be praying! funny find!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Nice one, and funny too. It is definitely in bad shape, but a nice subject for your photo. Nice!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Hmmm... I think it's worth the risk, don't you?? [:
I like this photo, though!!
posted June 17th, 2010  
What a great find! It looks a little unstable to me...lol
posted June 17th, 2010  
Definitely looks risky,,but makes an awesome photo! Good job =)

haha! what a great shot!

Well that certainly is an "understatement"! Vacation is over, we just arrived back here in Illinois a few hours ago...had a wonderful time! Now I gotta catch up with everyone! I think I need a vacation from the vacation!

Good find - great photo!

What a wonderful find, Louise! ;-)) I wouldn't risk it ;-))

I hope you get some tranquility tomorrow ;-) It's good you are not the only noisy neighbours - summer is the time for relaxation, but also rennovation! Soon enough the roof will be done, and you can welcome the lazy mornings once again ;-))

Washington has a wonderful small town feel about it. Jeremy says that it reminds him of New Orleans - all it needs is the horse-drawn carriages ;-) I've only been to New Orleans once, after Katrina, so I can't really tell. But it seems that every town that's on water (river or ocean), has a more relaxed atmosphere about it.

Today Jeremy powerwashed the house - tomorrow it gets painted in historic colors ;-)) Getting anxious to move in soon! ;-)

Have a great rest of the week and good night ;-))

P.S. I lose track of time, too - it's so easy to do! Weekdays blend into weekends, and vice versa. My computer is still showing Bulgarian time... right now it's 7 in the morning at home! ;-)

Yikes, use at your own risk for sure. Great find!
posted June 17th, 2010  
LOL- doesn't look too sturdy. Makes for a great picture though.

Love the wood against the water!
posted June 17th, 2010  
That amuses me! Love it when signs state the obvious!! "Free firewood" could equally well describe it! Lovely water texture.
posted June 17th, 2010  
fantastic capture!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Haha. Fantastic find.

What a terrific find,that's halarious! Great shot Louise.
posted June 17th, 2010  
Yikes! Great find - definitely watch your step!
posted June 17th, 2010  
lol gosh, maybe just a little risky :)
posted June 17th, 2010  
That's a funny sign. You need to risk you life just getting out to it.
posted June 17th, 2010  
Don't walk out there to get a picture Louise! Even if it's a squirrel!!!!!!

:-)
posted June 17th, 2010  
Oh, how funny, Louise. I love this photo
posted June 17th, 2010  
That is so funny Louise. Fantastic find and great shot.
posted June 17th, 2010  
One would think so and then you see someone do something INCREDIBLY stupid and then you understand why signs like these exist. haha
posted June 17th, 2010  
This is just great! :)
posted June 17th, 2010  
someones having fun ..unless whilst he was placing the sigh he fell in and it ended up like this ..lol... did you look down (o;

its such a nice picture .... I hope my decking goes this lovely colour in the sun Louise ... somehow i doubt it will its just too wet over here
posted June 17th, 2010  
great find,I love the picture.
posted June 17th, 2010  
Hahaha. What a find! Glad you took this picture.

Had any big storms lately? My friend's dock looked like this after one of the hurricanes pounded their area.
posted June 17th, 2010  
looks a bit tricky
posted June 17th, 2010  
Oh wow. Very precarious. Great shot though.
posted June 17th, 2010  
Hahahaha great concept and great shot! Complete with what looks like jutting, rusty nails. Thanks for the comments on my project by the way! I look forward to growing in photography and the 365 community :-)

Hey Louise, there's a dachshund meet up at Seaview Memorial Park in Halifax this Sunday. Wish I could go! LOL http://www.whosyourdachshund.com/2010/05/halifax-dachshund-takeover-june-20.html
posted June 17th, 2010  
That's funny! Ha ha ha. Great!

They go with us pretty much everywhere. With Jordan being our special needs pup...we can't leave him with anyone. I'm sure he would have a heart attack. He's afraid of everyone but us (myself and Tammy). He's been like that from day one and we have no idea why. He's the sweetest boy but just so afraid of everything. We are going to Charleston, SC at the end of July and they will be tagging along...lol. We rented a house that allows dogs.
posted June 17th, 2010  
LOL! Good find on your walk. Watch your step.
posted June 17th, 2010  
this is such a very interesting photo, Louise! i love the way you composed this especially with the deep blue water underneath the broken plank!
posted June 17th, 2010  
that's funny! glad you like my turkeys! We have quite a population of wildlife at the place I work. The campus is large and we have left much of the land to wooded areas and prairie conservation. The turkeys are normal residents. They're funny because they are not afraid of us. They must "know" that we're not going to eat, I mean hurt them.
posted June 17th, 2010  
Love it! Never noticed this dock before. Too funny =-)
posted June 17th, 2010  
Love the angle and comp! Great job, Louise!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Oh that is funny, I like that!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Great find! I really like this shot!
posted June 17th, 2010  
What an amazing capture. Definitely looks a little rickety. Wouldn't be surprised if someone gets a shocking drop into the water when stepping on that thing. (I picture one of those carnival booths where a guy in a chair gets dropped into a tank when someone hits the bullseye with the ball. Haha)
posted June 17th, 2010  
:)
posted June 17th, 2010  
I think that sign must have been there a long time, nobody could erect it at that angle without getting down underneath, surely.
Anyway it gave us all a good look and discussion.

This is really neat and ironic! I love it. :]
posted June 17th, 2010  
Ha. Made me smile. And no pummeling necessary...I'll talk! :)
posted June 17th, 2010  
how funny - that certainly wouldn't pass a health-and-safety inspection! Thank you for your comment on my strawberry - and yes, my one fave is Pink! When I started doing this I selected lots of faves at first, but then ended up not keep up with it and decided not to have any - so I removed them all - but couldn't bear to "delete" him!
posted June 17th, 2010  
haha yikes!

Morning, Louise! Nope, I've suffered zero jet lag this trip! I've been sleeping later (6:30) than I ever do in Colorado. I guess it's a measure of how ready I was for a break ...
posted June 17th, 2010  
Oy, I hope this dock-builder doesn't build rafts, too. :-)
posted June 17th, 2010  
haha! I just love signs like this...! Good find!
posted June 17th, 2010  
I'm surprised you didn't take a venture out. I bet it would have held. :)

awesome find Louise! I'm glad we both get the whole time vs 365 battle. You are not alone. sending you some smiles and sunshine! :) always loving your photos!

This is great .. at least there was a warning sign. my host -Hans's sister and i went for a nice walk through the woods and when we came to almost the ends of the walkway she saw a sign that someone had thrown into the bushes ..it was a warning sign for bikers that there would be 7 steps ahead which lead directly to a highway below. can you imagine what might happen to someone not knowing the danger ahead. and who in the world would do such a thing on purpose. some people are just sick!!!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Ah, Louise, what a wonderful picture. I love old things like this! I matches my old wharf building in Mahone Bay, wouldn't you say? Very fun!
posted June 17th, 2010  
Haa Haa, great capture, nice picture, and so funny, someone really has got a sense of humour! : )
posted June 17th, 2010  
Oh my, well I sure wouldn't be taking any chances on that LOL. Maybe when I was younger, but not these days.

It certainly makes for a great photo!
posted June 17th, 2010  
by the time i get down here i forget what the picture was! our reunion is at the end of july, i'm sure there will be a picture or two!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Makes a great photo! :D
