Signs


Signs are one of my favourite things to photograph at home and while travelling. Their meaning changes for various reasons such as cultural connotation or political correctness, and as a copy editor I’m always on the lookout for interesting grammar and punctuation.

Glad I’m not on this bus! (Danish tour bus; turistfart means “touring” in Danish.)

 

Menus


Menus are always so interesting, not just for what a restaurant offers, but for their design and wording–so diverse and creative. I appreciate the fact that a lot of restaurants catering to tourists provide translations–even if they’re a little off.
