DSC00373 A Roads wrong colour.jpg
Signage error at the Blackhall Junction in Edinburgh. Queueing in traffic, I thought there was something odd about this sign, and eventually noticed the colour patches are incorrect. The A roads should be signed using yellow on green, but instead are white on green.
Clean Up After Your Dog Sign at Meadowlands Avenue, Georgian Village, Limerick on Friday, 25th February, 2011.jpg
This is a typical example of anti-dog fouling signage as erected by Limerick City Council, Ireland. Although there is a lot of text on the sign, it certainly does make one think!

Maybe the way in on the right and the way out on the left (right on the side of the driver coming out) would be better.
A temporary sign showing the C201. Pretty self explanitory really.

Road closed for Curzon Street. This is part of the area that is planned to be redeveloped for HS2. The street lights seen here appear to be 10 to 12 metre columns with lanterns such as Urbis Albanys and Philips Lumas. They may renew the street lighting down this road if they start rebuilding the train station. Just have to wait and see what happens.
