Heather Kapplow [198]

Heather Kapplow
Allston, MA, USA

This was taken by the waterfront in the very beautiful town of Kuopio, Finland. The town posted many signs like this one in surprising places to remind visitors and citizens of their mortality and their impending disappearance from all memory. Each sign has a different animal, plant, or human shape fading into whiteness. Coming from the Northeast of the US, where most signs are related to parking, I found this a very moving public service.
