[Theme] Signs and Billboards
« on: September 04, 2016, 08:18:08 »
While looking for images suitable for the wall thread, I stumbled across a few signs and billboards and thought they might be a good start for a thread.

From Prague (2008):






From Ireland (2015):



cheers

I think the museum of communism is a brilliant design. Nice catch

I found a Canon A1 at a thrift store and took it for a spin in Williamstown, Mass. last year.

Last week-end in France. One week before the elections and every place has its special billboards. I've made a series.
Which one do you prefer? Why? How could I take the billboards differently? 
Perhaps you have your own picture, please share.
Thanks.

The two last ones of the series are most telling ...

Thank you Bjørn for your reply.
Surprisingly some places were not ready.

Nicole, it's funny how they are exhibited in almost the same order on all the billboards :)

Nicole, you can combine 1,2,4,5,6,7 and then a bit extra #4 and call that "Only one vote for the right side"  ;)

Not one of my finer captures with the flash reflection taking it's toll on the image. I didn't check for that at the time, so shame on me. I put a CP 990 on a Stroboframe flip bracket and stuck an SB28 DX flash unit on top to get better flash coverage than the 990's built in birthday candle flash, and yes, that did light things up.

Anyway, this sign was posted in the Mesa, Arizona Senior Center Billiard Room.

Thanks Jakov, Werner and Thomas for your selection and comments.
The candidates are always in the same order. I don't how this order is defined.
The billboards have 12 places for posters but there are only 11 candidates  ;)
