This is why the people in my neighborhood should consult with an English speaker before ordering that costly neon sign.

Uploaded on my behalf....enjoyed playing with this in PS.

First thoughts: Reminds me of the view from Whitley Bay :D .  And, as I remember, you did your training nearby, Geoff.

 

But ...

 

This is more than an image.  It's a picture.  The sort of picture that might keep me awake at night.  The sort of picture that makes a lot of other (stock) pictures look so boring and bland.

 

Ten out of ten.

With its large ESL population, Vancouver has a lot of signs like these. A produce store near where I live sports a brand new awning with a sign announcing that they sell "Fresh Vegetable." However, they don't specify whether the vegetable is a carrot, an eggplant or a zucchini. I've been meaning to snap a picture of it. Now I feel inspired.

Guess I'm a bit late with these. Contemplative trolls, ridiculously expensive handbags, and fishy sunsets -- August was a weird month.

 

BTW, all photos were taken with one of those silly little NEX cameras.

I think I had a lunch date with that girl in your first picture. 

 

My favorite neon sign in my hood said: "Sal's Professional Removal of Freckle." He was my barber and he knew I had worked as a copy reader. And he talked to me nonstop in a mix of Italian, Sicilian and English. But he never asked.

I bet she has a really pleasant personality. (Whoops! I think we're being sexist.)

 

If Sal is charging by the freckle, he must be a rich man.

I like this one because it sums up the town where I live.

 

Also taken on one of those silly little NEX cameras.

For me it was this one. I had the image in my head, I grabbed two flags, and walked a long to the venue of the 2nd independence debate. There was only 4 guys hanging about and I asked them to help me out with this shot. It's something I've never done before but pressure to get something better than a shot of a building drove me to it. All the other PJ's where there looking at me and what I was up to.

Paul a moot point - and it may of course have been deliberate but your "models" are holding the Union Flag upside down.

 

Used to indicate "distress" - hence why it may have been intended or indadvertedly appropriate ;-)

 

It is also "lese Majeste" (which means: insulting the Crown), and is theoretically still  a crime in the UK.

Paulstw, unless it's what you intended, please mark it for deletion and remove the keywords so it doesn't appear in searches. This could be used for the wrong reasons.

A red arrow for asking someone to delete an image of the Union Flag upside down? Really?

Some things are important.

Give me another for this, then.

Here's that other 'mistake' sign I mentioned. Sal went totally out of business a few months after I snapped this image, and I'm sorry to say he has since passed on.

Quick thinking tp produce a memorable shot.  Did you know that they have the Union flag upside down, a symbol of distress? Might affect your keywording.

 

Edit:  Sorry, didn't see the similar comments.  Still a good shot, though.

In this picture the slot for the hoisting cord is clearly on the right, not the left, so the flag is being shown the correct way up.

Compare the alignment of the white Saltire in the Union Jack with that on the Scottish flag on the right. The broader part is above the corner by the hoist on both. It is the right way up.

Quite right. I'm on a hair trigger with all this separatist nonsense. Sorry, Paulstw.

Took a nice walk down along the Scugog River here in Lindsay and caught a couple of nice shots:

Absolutely no reason to apologise. I had no idea there was an upside down rule on the union flag. Worth noting for future. Crikey!
