Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

My first reaction when I saw this week’s Challenge was:  ‘Signs???  I don’t take photographs of signs’.   But what do you know… it turns out I quite often do.

When I trawled through my archives I found I’ve taken photos of signs on boats….

… signs on trains and steam engines and at railways…

not to mention the odd dog-washing machine…


… the odd sign outside old French cottages


… a tiled mosaic at the ice-making plant at a Spanish fishing port…

DSCF2315and a sign that must have come as a disappointment to certain members of the community in a little village where we moored earlier this year.



So yes, I guess I do take pictures of signs  …  🙂

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.
