Very different from our trafficlights !

Vita Stunder said...

Terrific shot!!!!

I just LOVE this one.
And the title is perfect.

You have much cooler trafficlights then we have. Green with envy! ;)

I like the blue sky and branches in the backdrop. What if life had no DON'Ts, anyone can do whatever they want... just suggestions... I like the structure and boundaries, as long as they don't become chains and jails.

Ha!Too bad people have to be told when to walk and when not to. But not everyone has "good sense."

Red should get out attention and make us think of safety. Of course, there are those jaywalkers who will ignore the obvious and cross anyhow. We have been warned!

I like these electric signs. They assume I can read, and I respect their optimism. I am a little concerned about the mixed message, though. Do I walk or don't I? Are we playing chicken? What if I can't read red? And where did the leaves go from your trees?

Do people really obey them anymore? I feel so alone when I wait for the walk sign.

I bet you've had your fair share of jay-walking tickets?!?!
LOL~

Robin said...

Nice shot. I like our signs better though - we've got the walking green man and the red standing still guy - much easier for teaching kids (and tourists!) who's got the right of way!

Shadow said...

okay i won't...

Perfect!
I'm a fan of the little hand that tells me to stay right where I am and then there's the seconds countdown. . .anyway, nice post.

Stay right where you are,
don’t walk, don’t toddle, don’t move!
Freeze yourself in time.

Walk, don't walk - why don't they make up their minds... great Ruby Tuesday post! :)

~Just me again~ said...

I like this :). Just says it all.

Dianne said...

that's exactly what it means!! ;)

srp said...

Well, it is much better than seeing the "hand"... that's what they have here. The hand says stop. My rubies flew in here.

Neat idea, is it me or is the sign tilted?
