Weaving together various observations and musings -- usually pertaining to aspects of Hong Kong (life) but sometimes beyond.
Lovely takes (said in sign language :)
Nice collection, lovely illustrations too! Happy weekend. signs ~ quiet
Well spotted and yes birds do have ears. They can be quite startled.My quiet is at http://hindmarsh-island.com/?p=808
Hi magiceye --Thanks! :)Hi Mar --It's funny that none of the signs I have photos of have the classic "Do not disturb" line but I'm fine with that! :)Hi Vicki --If you're wondering, the Birds Have Ears sign is located near a hide at the Hong Kong Wetland Park. :b
Love the signs! These are often taken for granted here with all the noisy gadgets around. I especially like the birds have ears sign :DSreisaat Adventures
Lots of signs around us, some warn us of dangers ahead or a penalty for flouting rules; some advise us to be civic conscious, but sadly most people ignore them. The birds have ears sign is cool. They deserve some quietness too. Happy weekend!
Hi YTSL, great collection for the dual themes. I like the accompanying illustration/photos, especially the shhh sign. :) Have a wonderful weekend.
These are a great combination of the themes! And yes, sometimes I do actually go hunting for the photos based on the themes if I have camera in hand and a subject presents itself. I also look through my archives though so depends from week to week :)
Hi Sreisaat --I appreciate those signs -- and wish there were more of them around, and that their pleas would get heeded... especially inside of cinemas! ;SHi EastCoastLife --Gee... when a Singaporean says/writes what you did: honestly, I'd have thought that Singapore would be one of the places in the world where people would be most likely to heed warnings on signs! ;DHi Trekcapri --Am glad you like the illustrations on the photographed signs. :)Hi Sue --On Photo Hunting: I guess I have built up quite the photo archive in recent years, so usually am confident I'll find photos in the archive for the themes. But every once in a while, I do feel a need to go hunt for subjects to take photos of especially for Photo Hunts. :)
Lol, the first picture would cause serious problems to Mr. G. because he has a very loud voice and Italians cannot whisper !
cool takes on the theme!http://tc-twistedfairytale.blogspot.ca/2012/09/saturday-photohunt-quiet.html
Great choice for the combination of themes. I couldn't think of any signs I had that said to be quiet. Happy weekend.
Love the "Shh...Birds have ears" sign!!
I thought your first sign by the picture one couldn't laugh.Thanks for visiting earlier.Coffee is on.
Hi Gattina --Hahahaha re your comments! Actually, Hong Konger are often very loud people too... so it takes effort on their part too to be speak softly! :DHi Twisted Cinderella --Thanks!Hi Carver --I went hunting through my photo archive and found these signs. Have to say that I found fewer of these signs than I expected but at least there ended being enough to choose from! :bHi Vicki --Me too! :)Hi peppylady --Hahahaha! I definitely can see where you're coming from with that one! :D
Love the signs in other countries. I had a 6 hour layover in HK last month and I took a short bus tour. I wish I had more time to spare in your wonderful home city.
Hi ewok1993 --Six hours is just too short a time to spend in Hong Kong! Hope you did enjoy your limited time here nonetheless! :)
What a perfect combination of the 2 themes! I love taking photos of signs, too, but I don't recall having any requesting quiet.
Hi Alejna --I actually don't have all that many photos of "please keep quiet" type signs. Fortunately, had enough to choose from for this recent Photo Hunt entry though. :)
Love the birds have ears. Very nicely done for both prompts.Here's my Quiet and Signs
Hi Suzy --Thanks for visiting and am glad you like what you saw. :)
