DP Theme Day: Street Lights/Street Signs


What does this sign mean? I saw it at a zebra-crossing. They way the figure is, I thought it meant, "Tai Chi across the road." Doesn't the figure look like its wearing a mandarin collared outfit? It could be my active imagination. Hey!

Hi Edwin ! I just would like to point out that a ship from the Royal Malaysian Navy is calling in Cherbourg-Octeville (France) nowadays. She is called the Tunas Samudera. Have you ever heard of her ?

Check out the stick figure, on the sign in Monte Carlo. It has been fun finding so many figures on signs this theme day ... Your figure looks like he/she has a pony tail and no hands.

Nice shot, Edwin. =)

Accidental and indifferent matters, or what must appear so to the child, find no acceptance http://startso11.info/adres%40domena.pl.html in the contents of the dream.. I knew the lectures were of value, and I thought it best he should http://startso11.info/praca+w+rawiczu+dla+ucznia.html be able to keep the connection.. They are http://startso11.info/naprawy+powypadkowe+krak%C3%B3w.html always models of obedience, ma'am.. The Major was forced to http://startso11.info/Wyszukaj+dreehttp%3A%2F%2Fwww..html make an apologetic address to Mrs.. Oh, Lord! They had rounded the http://startso11.info/teorie+dyscypliny.html big clump of evergreens and found Aunt Missouri Claiborne placidly rocking on the front porch! Directed to mount steps and ring bell, to lay cards upon the servant, how should one deal with a rosy-faced, plump lady of uncertain years in a rocking-chair.. But I saw only a bank-bill, more or http://startso11.info/aniczek+foto+blog.html less crumpled and tattered, marked with a larger or lesser figure.. Your collar is miles too http://startso11.info/www.action.pl.html big for me.. I wonder if we couldn't scare http://storyah44.info/pokoje+goscinne+nad+morzem.html up a little session of dollar limit? Both Uncle Billy and Mr.. He is to make phenylmagnesium-bromid; he http://startso11.info/motorola+v980+-+dane+techniczne.html sees the apparatus with particular clearness, but he has substituted himself for the magnesium.. Your client? Do you mean you http://startso11.info/rolscy+ogrodnictwo.html have taken her case? You, the counsel for the Ditch Company? said Mr.. Edward Morland handed her to her carriage, and then joined his mother http://startso11.info/przejazd+z+Poznania+do+Bo%C5%9Bni-Chercegowiny.html and sister in their commendations of Mrs.. And when it came to talking of those old days--if Major Talbot liked to talk, Mr. http://startso11.info/na+stopy.html. There is, however, no need of assuming that this mental work is performed during sleep, as this http://startso11.info/internetowe+sklepy+w+Wielkiej+Brytanii.html would materially impair the conception of the psychic state of sleep we have hitherto adhered to.. Of the Church! We ain't askin' any questions o' you --and we ain't takin' any answers, http://startso11.info/gerda.html said the foreman, sitting down promptly.. But the contribution from the foreconscious, which is missing http://startso11.info/Nobis%2C+biuro+rachunkowe%2CWroc%C5%82aw.html here, may be found in another place.. It is http://startso11.info/komis+komputerowy+lublin.html a party ye're expecting? Blessed are them what expects nothing.. You don't happen to know the Gately's, of New York, do you? he was quite anxious http://startso11.info/www.weronikaaa1993.fb.pl.html to know.. At certain intervals, some http://startso11.info/www.bialystok+akces.pl.html of the best speakers mount the platform, and speak a piece, which is generally as declamatory as possible.. The conversion of the latent dream thoughts into those manifest deserves our close study as the first known example of the transformation of http://startso11.info/cds.html psychical stuff from one mode of expression into another..

Cute sign, maybe the artist was bored with the usual "man" and decided to be creative.
