A Photo A Week Challenge : Crowd

Irish Open 2014, 18th Hole

When I looked at today’s theme, I immediately thought of the above photo, taken at the final of the Irish Open, which was held in one of our local golf clubs, Fota Island Resort, in June this year.    We were lucky enough, and organised enough, to obtain tickets in the stands for the final day, so had a great (seated) view of the crowds below us, all wanting to see and be as close as possible to the players.

Weekly Photo Challenge : The Sign Says

Signs. Funny, poignant, symbolic, incorrect, informative, foreshadowing…there are so many signs in the world. 

I would like to show you some signs I have come across on my travels,that made me smile, and some others that are interesting and informative.

The first photo was taken on a golf course in South Africa, though it’s a well travelled sign, as I have seen similar ones in other places.

Accurate weather prediction?

There was a rock hanging from the sign, which I may not have captured in the photo, but you get the idea.

waiting for the topless bus.

The very colourful sign above, is at one of the bus stops for the open top bus that travels around Cape Town, also known as the ‘topless bus’- not that I came across anyone topless on it, maybe it was the wrong time of year for that sort of thing!!

While travelling around New Zealand a few years ago, I came across some very amusing signs when driving through the small towns, such as the town that is famous for its fresh produce, imagine having to chop this up for your Irish Stew!

Famous local landmark!

And in a small town called Bulls, the townspeople have a sense of humour,and made the most of the name!
