Signs

DSC_0563

If you’ve read my blog before, you may have noticed that I have a habit of photographing signs. I’m obsessed with them. Every place I travel, I take pictures of signs. There’s something that just draws me to them, I love the bold colours and fonts. I’m fascinated by the fact that so much information and instruction can be boiled down to simple symbols and images that are quite often universally understood.

I took the photo above on a recent trip to Austria. I was walking to a local park with my nephew, nieces and their friends when the bright yellow and orange of the safety sign caught my attention. It stood out amongst the organic greens and browns of the surrounding alpine landscape, which I guess is what a sign is meant to do.
