Don't feed...

Don't feed the animals. A funny thing is that just a few minutes later I saw people giving food to a squirrel with almost exactly the same look.

Here is the other picture:

A sign I've seen for the first time. The safe/dangerous area is clearly indicated by the dotted lines. Self-explanatory. Stay away.

Ecological sign

Seen in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The first time I saw this. In fact a pretty intelligent recommendation, even if only people who are already convinced will actually read the text. Many hikers are destroying nature by leaving the trails and causing problems without realising it ,probably.

Not the least stressing sign I have encountered. Seen in BC, Canada, close to Kamloops on a small parking/rest area on the main road. We don't have dangerous snakes where I live, so this was a bit new to me.

Walk your bike

Seen in Whistler, British Columbia, a high end mountain village. There are lots of bikers during the summer with their mountain bikes. Strictly forbidden to use the bike inside the village...

Not a sign

Not exactly a sign but this was too funny to miss. I just liked the sense of humour. Spotted in downtown Vancouver.

Strasbourg Cathedral

Spotted in France, when entering the cathedral, you see that you have to be silent, don't smoke, don't use a phone, don't bring food, a pet and don't wear a hat.

Another no picture sign

... same story as the previous one. Always funny to see how quickly those signs are getting outdated.

No pictures (1)

Just another sign to show that taking pictures and filming are prohibited.

Signs in Colmar, France, to indicate the Christmas Market. All directions were in fact possible since the shops were all over the city, hence the confusing directions.

Watch the gap ?

Just another version of the numerous mind the gap signs, only this one was not exactly readable from a distance. Seen in the NY subway.

Something very logical and already old in the USA, but almost never displayed in Europe even if most people will expect EVERYBODY to wash their hands...

Access forbidden ?

This is a Polish sign. I would assume it means: no entry or don't walk here...
