Fisherman’s Wharf – where seals dive and surface.

Early morning at the lower causeway showing one

of the tourist traps waiting for tourist $$$.

More pics of our harbour where many celebrities have

moored their mega yachts while visiting here.

Reflections from very early morning sun downtown Victoria and

an answer to Mandrake’s question “what does that sign represent

in that picture”? Hope this closeup answers that.

Image 7491 didn’t appear for some reason. If you click on it

at the Attachments area you will see my rendition of a diving sealSmile

Hello Dale…

I love the address sign… I’m going out right now and turn mine sideways.

Image 7941 (or 7491 as you refer to it) is…………….. I can’t think of a polite way of saying it.

The sign… Canadian signs tell you what you can do rather than what you can not do?

Mandrake

Sometimes I think I suffer from dyslexia! Well, anyways the seal

was not interested in posing for cameras and left us with this

less than memorable vision!

Canadian signs sometimes take getting used to and we do get asked

what some of them mean sometimes. This sign tells people that you can

take a dog with you but keep it on a leash. You can bring rollerblades but

you can’t use them. Likewise with a skateboard. And, finally, don’t even think

about riding the bike you brought with you. One of the best signs I ever saw

around here read “slow down to 40 kph when children on road”! I guess that

means if you’re only doing 40 you probably won’t kill one but any faster and

it could be fatal. Wish I had a picture of that one!!!

I like the 7569 and 7804 most in all of them…

In 7569…as the water is still the reflection of sky is really good..

In 7804..the shine on that number “18O3” is amazing and the reflection of another building on the background blends properly…

Great set Dale,..thanks for sharing!!Smile

Maybe we need a section for “great signs”?  🙂

That’s a great idea, Michael.  For now I would think “Travel and Landscape” should suffice.
Our Canadian members might have an advantage, but that’s ok.

Thanks for the nice comments Sam – really appreciate that.

As far as sign contest goes…Mscharff you win hands down!

That elderly sign broke me up – too funny.

Dale.

By the way, I will be looking for a sign to top that old folks one now.

OK – So we should look for crazy, funny, interesting and

unusual signs…but elderly signs are off limits.

Could be a tough task but lets all try.

I have a huge amount of crazy signs from when I was in Ulverston, UK a couple years back.  I will dig them out and post them tonight.

Bring them on Brian!

Mandrake – We Canadians have no problem being fair game

and welcome any submissions by anyone caring to post.

Nothing off limits so lets get on with the contest.

Love these great colour and composition.
I always think the old woman in that elderly signs is either a perv or a pick pocket, So I always keep my eye out for them when I see that sign lol

Just the woman?  Not the man?  There should be equality in discrimination.

Great picture Dale and also nice place of photograph. It might be very nice at night as well! 

 

So you guys, want a new section on the forum: THE COOLEST STREET SIGNS. You got it! 

 

https://easy-exposure.com/photo…..eet-signs/

 

I didn’t know what to call this section (my brain didn’t work that well after 4th of July, lol), so I called in THE COOLEST…, but if you have any the ideas please let me know.
