A bit of a contradiction?!

#1 Post by greengreengrass » Sun Feb 15, 2009 9:29 pm

A rather strange setting for a 'Fine Arts School' I came across while wandering in Hong Kong

Seemed a bit out of place somehow!

Good idea northbrook, no doubt you have a few hidden away in your photo library....which is probably well organised, unlike mine which is in forty different places!
And of course the actual photos, as opposed to the virtual ones, in most cases have nothing written on the back and the old memory is not what it used to be!

I don't have a photo but I remember years ago when Esther Rantzen did 'That's Life' that someone sent in a photo where someone else had changed the sign outside a blood bank so that it read 'CONGEALED ENTRANCE'.

If you want to leave the motorway in Germany use the next AUSFAHRT.

I have been keeping an eye out here in Paris for signs - seen one yesterday Bar and Restaurant near Chatelat called "Wet Willies"!!
didnt get a photo tho, i was on my own with the pram, taking photos of a Wet Willies sign!!

This photo was taken in the Pigalle area of Paris!! taken by my father-in-law who thought it was hilarious!!
