Somebody had some fun with the ‘reserved seat’ signs on a London Underground train. Here are some more, from a set on Steve Collins’ Flickr stream: Central line stickers. See all of Steve’s photos, usually design-related with an occasional bias towards railways, here.
Also of note for those interested in church things: Steve’s ‘Small Ritual‘ site. A few graphics picked fairly but not completely at random:

I’m not sure whether the intended readership of this sign are historians, vandals, or funeral attenders, but I like it. There is nothing worse than not knowing when a door was bricked up.
The church in question is St Mary the Virgin, Little Burstead, which is a couple of miles from where I live.
This photograph was brought to you as part of the DW ‘post something on the blog every day even if it is rubbish’ scheme. I can’t see it working myself, but there you go.

Topics for consideration could include:
- The nature of leaving: quickly, quietly etc
- Whether this juxtaposition of signs would be appropriate in an ecclesiastical setting
- Whether the little man would fit through the door and why he has no feet

I’m on a bit of a holiday at the moment. I’m still logging onto the internet, the difference being that I have to balance the small laptop on top of a wardrobe to get an internet signal whilst straining on tiptoe to see it, rather than just sitting at my desk in comfort. Alternatively I can go to a hotspot internet location serving not especially good £2.50 coffee.
There’s nothing particularly interesting or amusing about this holiday snap, but it is my custom to share a holiday picture or two with any readers who are still reading. Feel free to share any thoughts about the lessons that we can all learn from this sign.
On a photographic note, I posted a few pictures from Synod this morning on my Church Times blog. Nothing that interesting – most of them were just pictures of beige seating.

A brief moment of joy in Chelmsford yesterday.
Apologies to passers-by who were obstructed by a cameraphone-wielding idiot loitering outside Debenhams on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

Photo taken in the Wish Tower Cafe Eastbourne on Saturday.
Sorry to not be around for a few days. I took my little computer but forgot my dongle. Actually, as it turned out, life is rather more fun when you don’t look at the computer. Though it means I’m now behind on a million religious news stories.
I love Eastbourne. We watched some tennis and saw some people, but not many people as we could have done as I forgot to organise it.
Additional note on the Wish Tower Cafe by Russell Davies on his “a good place for a cup of tea and a think” blog:
But these huge rows of comfy chairs are the best bit. Long rows facing out to sea and sunshine. Obviously in a lot of demand, so the pensioners develop clinical expertise in sensing what sets of chairs are about to come free. They can read the signals of coming and going in much the same way fishermen intuit the movements of the tide and the schooling of the fish.

Photograph taken in Bournemouth on Saturday:
The little additional sign and the quotation marks both made me happy.
If you enjoy unusual uses for quotation marks you will also appreciate this post by Little Red Boat.
Later on I will explain why were were in Bournemouth.

I took this photograph in a seaside town yesterday.
I’d like to reassure everyone that any peering on my part was merely to ascertain the extent to which peering was or was not allowed. Once I had read and understood the notice I was quick to bring any peering that I had undertaken up until that point to a sudden and abrupt end.

I surround myself with motivational posters as I find they spur me on in times of adversity. This is one of the ones that I am finding helpful at the moment.

This sign gave me a mild sense of wellbeing.
I’ve worked out that by blogging one holiday photograph a day I probably have enough material to keep me going until next year’s holiday. Fear not though readers, more cartoons and etceteras coming shortly.

It is rare that one is given the chance to post a photograph that will appeal to both the punctuation pundits and the fashion fanatics at the same time, so when the opportunity arises it is right to grasp it with both hands. Or for those with my computing technique, both fingers.
I will be posting some drawings soon, I promise.
Oh, by the way, this photo was taken in Swanage, in case you are longing to see for yourself what is in-side. Swanage is lovely. By the sea and everything.
