One reply on “Slam Shut”

Thanks – the brick work looks great. The instructional language of warning signs can often seem strange when viewed form an oblique angle. I mean, Apart from the slam shut instruction (almost the opposite to what you’re told to do with doors and other devices) I’m wondering what would a dressed light look like? It reminds me of the semi-moral signs I used to see as a kid in the public swimming pool – no bombing, no heavy petting………prompting me to consider doing things I never thought of (like going through the door that says ‘no entry’)

Great documentary about photography on TV now…..a guy called Araki from Japan – A photo blogger from before blogging –
