Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

bb-signs1

As a student of Linguistics, I am very interested in semiotics and, in particular, the affective impact of public signs.

Last week I got to realize a lifelong dream by taking a holiday in Japan. I loved the public signs there and the politeness of some of the signs in the Tokyo subways and trains.

I think people are more inclined to co-operate if a sign is polite than if it shouts, “Do not do this! Do not do that!”.

What do you think?

For this week’s photo challenge, guest host Frédéric Biver suggests, “…for this week’s challenge, bring together two of your photos into dialogue. What do they say to each other?

What story do these two photos tell you?
