BILLBOARDS

Jakesprinter in his Sunday Post has challenged us to show some billboards in our posts this week.  Visit his site in the link above to see more.

A billboard (sometimes also called a hoarding in the UK and many other parts of the world) is a large outdoor advertising structure, typically found in high-traffic areas such as alongside busy roads.

Billboards present large advertisements to passing pedestrians and drivers. They are everywhere. They are on buildings, buses, and cars to name a few.

Here are a few I found in Times Square and in Pittsburgh.

  1. I’ve yet to go there but my sister lives right by times square as well as a friend of mine, wow! what a city 🙂 great shots of Pittsburgh! 🙂

  2. Hi, Francine! Wonderful blog you have! I saw you over at Petals Unfolding and came here to find out more about you. I like the personal touch so I try to see who it is that is liking my work.

    I’ve been to Times Square and I was so overwhelmed by all the noise and sights that I just about went into a panic. I’ve never seen so many people or lights or cars in one place ever! I am not planning on going back. Cities are not my thing. Now give me a garden or a forest or a park….oh yes, that is where I come to life. (smile) Good luck in the contest!!!

    Love, and (((HUGS))) Amy

    • Hi Amy, I understand how you feel. I was the same way on my first trip. The lights and the people can be a bit overwhelming and so different from where I come from. I live in a city that is like a small home town. I do have a flower garden that brings we peace and contentment. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

  4. Very nice collection!

  5. I love the bus and Pittsburgh’s warm welcome!

  6. When I saw the post’s title, I wondered if Times Square would make it into your photo gallery, Francine. It’s practically obligatory that if you go there with a camera, you must take at least one photo. 🙂

  7. Those cakes look decadent Francine!
    Times Square is definitely well-known for its huge billboards.

  8. Thanks for sharing this amazing post Francine …. 🙂

  9. Glad you did this one! I’m trying to support Jake since his return but I didn’t have much for this. 🙂
