france: read the signs





i have to say: wednesday without corner view is somehow strange. don't you think?

so in lieu of our regular wednesday challenge, here are some more impressions from france. this time from arles. we went there to see the photo festival that takes place once a year. that evening though, we set off fairly late and arrived in arles at around five. too late really to start seeing the exhibitions, so we bought day tickets for the following day and wandered the streets, just taking in the light and atmosphere. here are some signs that caught my eye - such beautiful typography, wouldn't you agree? 

oh, and that last sign: go on, read it...

(too right, i'm off to buy some ice-cream now - see you later!)
