Sign of the Times

Coverage of the Signspotting Project, a collection of strange, funny and improbable signs collected by the American journalist Doug Lansky and currently on display at the Edinburgh Festival, has made me turn to some of my own collection of photographs of signs – as friends know, this is one of my favourite subjects too.

Here are a few of my own:

"Swimming Here is a Death Call", on Goubert Road, Pondicherry, India

forthright instruction at Leamington Peace Festival

sensible advice, near Kruger National Park, South Africa

extreme wishful thinking in Bombay

Bombay - 4477 miles from Green Street in Forest Gate, I stumble upon...

guidance for lost seafarers, Cape of Good Hope, South Africa
