Default Photo Challenge #112 ~ Sign Here {02/02/2011}

Here's one open to all sorts of different interpretations.

We're looking for any sort of signs - shop signs, posters, hoardings. What inspired me was the fact that I've walked under the Bulmers Cider sign for maybe three years now, several times a week, and I only consciously noticed the apples last week. I love looking out for shop signs - there are some wonderful ones in Paris, and I took a whole series of different fish shop ones in Greece last year.
I've added sign language too for one of my shots. It always interests me to see it - some of the Europeans I've seen are so animated compared to the rather staid Irish version. Last year on holidays in Greece we used to see an elderly man coming along to swim every morning, there were several people who could sign with him.



Those of you not buried under snow might have signs of Spring . I see catkins on some trees near us, and daffodils just starting to poke up through the earth.

I did have a photo that had both English and Irish on it, but I have another one I'd prefer to use in this post; I'll go and find another bilingual one tomorrow, I hope
