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.

Take care!

When it comes to take a photo, you also have so many options. Decide, on the ISO, aperture, shutter time, view angel and many more things. In post processing you also have many options. Stay with the color version your camera has recorded or change some things, like i.e. convert ist to a monochrome scene.

This is my photo for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this week.

Take care!

Did I already mentioned the Parisian street musicians

No? Here they are:

You can find musicians not only in the subway (called metropolitain or metro) stations or the metro trains, but also in the streets or places where many pedestrians come to. So you can find them at tourist attractiions i.e. at the Basilica Sacre Coeur,  in front of the former kings palace Louvre (now a big and famous art museum) or at the Eiffeltower. And, certainly, in some restaurants musicians were playing piano.

I usually saw musicians playing Continue reading “Did I already mentioned the Parisian street musicians”
