I like it. each image speaks so much more than the sign it illuminates with you style and the telling of the story around the sign. Thanks for not only noticing but also recording your vision.

so this is us ,is it ...urban, cheeky, mad, literate,obstreperous, obstructive, obstructed, desperate to be heard above the urban din ... you are right that the twenty first century is many a townscape .. why do you not join the royal photographic society contemporary group and see how the others portray this sort of thing
