As I was walking around London this week taking pics for last week's challenge, I noticed just how many signs there were everywhere. So this week's challenge is to photograph a SIGN or SIGNS, preferably in an imaginative, or maybe, jokey way. It can be small, huge, or anything in between.

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday
4. All uploads must be B&W (or sepia toned)
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
8. Have fun
9. Selfies are allowed, but only if you've stuck a sign on yourself.

Well. Unusually, I'm first in this week.

A long walk around the sleepy little town I live in produced a very limited crop of photos to choose from. In fact, this was the only one!

I did have some other ideas but unfortunately the signs were either missing entirely or not suitably located for the shots I had in mind. So this one had to do. Sad

Is this a sign of our times? Only two entries so far and the sands of time are running out quicker than a Brexit deadline.

I did get a photo. I had to overexpose it by a backstop. Smile

That's OK for you to say Malc. I live on the one level and don't have a stair to trip someone up on. Tongue

A bit of a race against time to get the entry in as we had a 28 mile drive back home at 6.30pm and processing the photo at 7.50pm but no panic necessary. Smile

Hi All
Thank you for all your entries.

I'm off to my pit as I'm full of cold and soreness, but not before I quickly congratulate Philip on his particularly ironic signage, suitably processed in dull mono tones to enhance the dilapidation, (although the sight of Malc in his slacks, flat out on the floor, was particularly pleasing). And what exactly is Virol? It does sound especially good for children; they should all get some. Grin

So well done and over to you Philip.

Congrats to Philip and thanks to Chris for struggling through this tonight. There's a link about Virol under the photo, and you could maybe be doing with some by the sound of it. Wink

Sorry to disappoint you, Chris but that's not me lying there Tongue
Well done, Phil - good one.

Thanks Chris - hope you feel better soon from what may be viral but unresponsive to Virol.

I'll try and get my brain in thinking mode to come up with a new topic.
