In one of the narrow, winding streets around the great cathedral of Chartres, I spotted this slightly disconcerting sign featuring a baby. The presence of the passing pedestrian helped to make the shot.

This was the scene that would confront me when I stood at night on the balcony of our apartment in Abu Dhabi.
It’s a lot quieter here.

A butcher’s window display that I spotted in one of the narrow streets of the San Polo neighbourhood of Venice. The big hand-written sign ‘Oggi c’e il capretto’ means ‘Today we have kid [as in kid goat]’ and there it is, hanging right in the middle.

Week 12 of the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge hosted by The Girl That Dreams Awake has the topic of ‘Street’.
The genre of ‘street photography’ isn’t really my thing. However, this is probably my favourite street view: the road that runs through our hamlet of ‘Tranquility Base’. In the rush hour.
(Confession time: I’ve used this image before, in a post on my other site. Although, to judge from the stats, you won’t have seen it.)

If I come out of my house, walk the 25 yards or so up to the road and look to my left, this is what I see. And people wonder why I refer to the petit hameau we live in as ‘Tranquility Base’.
(By the way, this is rush hour.)

Three for the price of one this week.
Cee’s latest Black & White challenge calls for something beginning with either B or W. Well, here is an image of a bicycle propped up against a brick wall in Bruges. Which, come to think of it, is in Belgium.
Oh, and what do bicycles have? Why, wheels of course. So make that four for the price of one.

For this week’s entry to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, here is an image from Venice, which does feature a road (‘Calle’) leading down to the Grand Canal, although it’s a moot point whether the road is the principal focus for the gentleman on the left.
The high contrast from the strong shadows works well in Black & White, I think, as does the highlighted texture of the walls.
