SOFTNESS is the theme for this week's Thematic Photography.    Carmi has posted a lovely photo of the fur of his dog.   I don't like copying ideas, but I couldn't resist the following photo of our first, and very much-loved dog.   She has been gone many years now, but I never forget her, or wish she was still here!

Wags, part Springer Spaniel, part Border Collie, never quite knew whether to retrieve us or round us up when we went for a walk!!

A feather - what more can I say?

Our garden seat, softly upholstered in snow!

Signs are meant to inform us or instruct us, tell us which way to go, or not go, do or not do, or just to tell us someone is here and would like your custom!   Sometimes, that is hard to believe!    Particularly some of the very large ones at road junctions - and sat nav is not always to be trusted!!

Carmi, over at writteninc. would like us, and you, to look out for signs this week.   Follow the link to see what signs others have come up with, and I bet there will be some wacky ones, meanwhile, this is what I can find in a brief visit to my town.

A mostly moving sign, telling us what they do.   If it hasn't gone past before you have taken it all in!

A nice clear, informative sign.   Except it doesn't say where the pay machines are!

A really friendly sign, outside our local organic food shop.   And very splendid it is too!

The other side tells you some of what is in there!

A sign designed to be read from the other side!

A very tall sign, not terribly helpful, as there are times when vehicles can go down the Market Place.   And can you see the very small sign that
 adds that alcohol is not permitted in that area?   No, neither could I!

And then there are teeny weeny signs means for a limited number of people to see.   Presumably an electrician would know what an earth rod is and why he would want to find it?   This is set in the pavement, very inconspicuously!

That's my set of signs!  Do let me know if you have visited!   And go to the link above to see the signs of others!
