One no entry sign that eventually you have to disobey grin
anniedog: Won't be a difficult one for me Bill as I find myself disobeying most signs!

I like this Holga stuff Ingrid: it has an eerie quality about it. And look how the circle of the sign is mirrored in the stonework too
anniedog: The magic of Holga! Funnily enough, I didn't notice the circles whilst I was taking the photograph - well spotted Chris.

I had expected a 'Dead End' sign - but this is also suiting the graveyard -who entered this area never returned! The biting red contrasts to the soft green and the pale grey - but as Chris said there are also some correspondences -I too like the Holga stuff very much!
anniedog: Thank you Philine - a dead end sign would have been too good to be true! The Holga seems to intensify all the colours - I haven't twiddled them.

You certainly do like the use of a bit of colour, one as an object to draw attention Ingrid. I rather like this sign with its blank notice.
anniedog: I find myself drawn to colour in my compositions - not necessarily red, but it does always look good against green. The Holga intensifies the colour.
Drat it. Philine has got there first with the obvious comment. I never thought of her as part of the German sun lounger brigade.
anniedog: You should have got here earlier then Richard!
What an amusing find Ingrid, apart for anyone who has already passed the sign.
anniedog: No turning back for them!

I assume I misunderstood your photo or the sign - I don't understand why RT mentioned my name in this context (graveyard, no beach or pool) No, I am not part of the "German sun lounger brigade"!
anniedog: You didn't misunderstand it. Richard is just referring to the fact that you beat him to it and that he would also have mentioned the Dead End sign. The reference to German sun loungers is just a well-known British joke at the expense of the Germans - on holidays abroad, the Germans were always supposed to be the ones to get down to the pool at the crack of dawn and place their towels on the sun loungers, thus preventing the lazy British from getting the best spots!
