Temporary - Thematic Photography

Wherever you go there are temporary things around you. It doesn't take Carmi's 'temporary' theme to distract you.

Diversion sign at a 'T' junction
Further along the road there's another temporary sign telling you (politely) where to go.

Diversion sign approaching roundabout
All the way to the garage at the roundabout and all the way back, four miles in all, I was wondering why.

The problem with being distracted you often don't see what's around you. Did I get 'sandbagged.' do you think?

Temporary sign on the ground (at that 'T' junction)
I moaned last week, under the 'dirty' theme, about mud left on the road from building work next door to us. Further up the village a house is having major work done on its drive.

Work-in-progress (Count the temporary bits)
Wheelie bin, portaloo, advertisement, pallet and materials
I wonder if there is a charge if I had to make a stop, temporarily, to spend a penny?

If you wish to study more temporary items you should go to our permanent inspiration Carmi's Thematic-photographic-302.

Nope you didn't get sandbagged but that temporary sign, temporarily on the ground did! What fun this was for me, your signs being different from ours are very interesting to see. You certainly didn't moan or groan on this post!

They just named the Orange Cone as the official tree of Utah, temporary is not a term we use for road construction.
(Great take on the theme!)

Very diverting post, Bob!

We say we have 7 months winter and 5 months road works here. The signs are very different. Easier to follow I think. I used to use a portaloo on my walks some years ago when I got caught short. Don't think you have to pay a penny anywhere any more do you?

Yes, that roundabout sign is very interesting. We're used to going the other way around over here!

Thank goodness road construction is temporary, eh? Although it usually feels like it drags on and on. Great shots, Bob :)

Nice take on the theme
