I don’t photograph monuments, rather get the postcard

I’m traveling overseas for the first time since 2006 (it’s 2010 as I type this, so you can do the math).

Now it’s not that I don’t think castles, old buildings and monuments are impressive, but I don’t think the world needs any more photos of the Eiffel Tower, thank you. Especially when other people with much better cameras, from much better angles with more impressive sunsets have already got the shot and printed it on a postcard for me.

So instead I take photos that make me giggle, like this.

Humps for 370 yards

I know it’s never going to be a postcard,¬† and not everyone giggles at the word hump on a sign. So expect photos of all sorts of things while you’re here.

Like London giving out FREE HIRE BIKES. Really! Look!


And they even give you advice on how to ride it safely, how thoughtful.

Did you know that Dubai Airport gives you the freedom to advertise smoking? And according to the advertisement ‘the freedom to enjoy’ it too.

As long as you’re in this box.

That’s it from the first day of travels.

Tomorrow.

Edinburgh.
