Monochrome Madness 4-36

Dec. 25, 2017 – Noon at Christmas Day

We have another theme for Monochrome Madness, this week. It’s “holiday”

End of December every year we have a couple of holidays during the Advent and Christmas season and finally New Year. Many shopping has to be done. So, you’re faced with over-crowded urban centers, traffic jams, full streets and parking grounds,¬†crowded shops and malls.All the people have common goals: buying gifts for Christmas, food for the¬†banquets or feasts, visiting the Christmas markets. Ordering the stuff online does not work any better, because the delivery services are overloaded, too. But, finally the holiday arrives and all the shops are closed. Empty streets and free parking grounds again. Silence,¬†calmness and hold-ups. A breathing time for the shop assistants.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate.¬†The conditions are ¬†published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

Street signs of Iceland

600_9203_wEach country has its own distinct street signs. While most street signs are standardized nowadays, some signs are still local. Here I collected some of the street signs of Iceland and put them in the gallery below. I guess, you will understand most of them at once.

The most funny one, in my opinion, is the zebra crossing for divers. Other noticeable ones are the warning of free running sheep or the warning of attacks by breeding birds next to the street. They even attack passing cars. Very Amazing!

Very interesting is the huge blue map, meant to help you finding the small hamlets and villages somewhere in the nowhere.
