Signage Photography Challenge on Steemit


okay I’ve been on steemit a few months now and what I’ve really enjoyed is these photographic challenges because
you know I’ve been taking photographs for years but just snapping away but now
with these photographic challenges I think it’s improving my photography
because you have to really look at things and take things into account and
that kind of stuff you know like composition who’s in the shop where’s
the light coming from all that kind of stuff and on my recent trip to York and
I was going around the railway museum and I started to notice all the signs
the signage I’ve been thinking about a new photography challenge and when I was
up in York at the National Railway Museum recently I was looking at all the
train names the names of the trains why do they name trains and the signage in
general and it struck me that you can actually look at signs street signs road
signs general street art and typography and if you’ve travelled a bit you can
actually tell where you are just by looking at the street signs and I’m not
saying like okay this is Birmingham or this is London but just by the
typography and the color schemes you can tell where you are for example this one
of the Metropolitan line in Paris if you ever been to Paris is very striking the
the typography and you know exactly where you are the same applies to the
London Underground they’ve got very specific typography so you can look at
the thing and say oh I know exactly where that is because of the signage now
my idea is to do a hashtag signage for people around the world so you go out
you take photographs of signs posters street signs you know names of streets
that kind of thing we get all these photographs of all this different signage from around the world and we have a lovely collection and it’s fun to do I think
it’s gonna be fun I had a lot of fun doing it so hopefully you will enjoy it
and you’ll join us thanks for watching see you next time
