Face of a tree

Someone saw the opportunity to carve a face in this tree.
I think it adds character, it's decent, and non offensive.
I've heard the term: defacing public property,
What would this be called, "facing" public property?
All I know is - I was facing, the face, that defaced this tree , as I snapped the photo.

Keeper's door

This is a photo, of the base, of the Keeper of the Plain's statue, seen in this blog's header.
The tall Indian Brave stands atop this man made boulder, and keeps watch over Wichita.
While the statue stands tall and proud, someone, behind this door keeps watch over the statue and plaza area.

Stop sign

This is a standard American Stop Sign, if interested, you can read about it at
wikipedia states:
"Stop sign used in English-speaking countries, as well as in the European Union"
A question for DCPBloggers who have a primary language other than English -

What is your language, and how do you say Stop?
With the help of an online translater I've come up with these translations of "stop".

Walking over traffic

This walkway turns a corner and crosses a second street. When I see it, I recall the days when shoppers would walk from the parking garage, that was connected by this walkway, to Macy's Department Store.
