Signs are all round us - every day we unconsciously follow signs.   Sometimes they are easy, simple signposts with words on - Exit, this way, Town Centre.   Sometimes just initials - ENT, X-Ray, PO, and sometimes just icons, logos, pictures or whatever you want to call them.

This week's Thematic Photographic subject is SIGNAGE.   Go to the link to see what others have come up with in the way of signs!

This is actually a fridge magnet (and an excellent one!) that I brought back from Svalbard in Norway (Spitzbergen, if you want the old name) when we visited a few years ago.   It is a very common sign on the roads in that part of North Norway - running into a large reindeer would not be recommended!

This label, complete with all the little logos, was slapped onto everyone's recycling bins the other week.   Just to make sure we didn't put anything in the wrong bin!

Motorists coming from Buxton down one of our steep hills are faced with so many signs and sign posts.    Hopefully those that are not local and know all this can take it in while they wait at the traffic lights!

Do go to the link above to see other signs, and leave a sign for me if you visit - I love to know if anyone has come!!

Gilly, I think the Norwegian sign is warning you of Elk (Moose),

Have a very Merry Christmas.

Bob, I don't think that is a sign for Moose. We have signs on all highways for Moose . They have much, much bigger antlers (woods). Great signs Gilly.

Have a wonderful Christmas!
