Der Lampenmann

This is a shot of one of the few "Lamp men" in East Berlin. There's been a push recently (I'm told) to change all these old East German Walk/Don't Walk signs to their much less entertaining western counterparts. As far as I can tell, many of the old signs still remain but they're dwindling.

The picture was shot on 120051008 at 17:13 with a Pentax Optio S50.

House in Ciudad Rodrigo, close to the Portugese border.

Lots of the ruined houses are for sale, but this one didn't say so. Round the front there were even some signs someone's starting to do it up.
