Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Signs


Signs of the Times

I notice signs and I often take photos of funny signs I see when I am out and about or the faded ghost signs often found on the side of old buildings.

Today while I was at the Op Shop I snapped a couple of pictures of signs on my phone.  We were not too happy about having to put this first one up but a few people take advantage of our sale by stuffing way too many things into their bags which is unfair to the rest of the customers.

We have the $5 sale every school holidays and the entire month of July every year. The money raised at the shop all goes back to support our local community so it is a bit disappointing when people try to take advantage.

This one is more humourous. Sorry it’s not a great photo. I was holding the phone above my head.

I do enjoy funny signs and snapped these two in shop windows in Hobart I think.

So it is!

Here are a couple I spotted outside a church near Bellerive Oval.

You have been warned.

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
