Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Circles and Curves
This week’s theme is ‘Circles and Curves’.
In the Cee’s entry, I found that a barber sign has almost same design in U.S. and here in Japan, and it surprised me because I thought that the sign was invented and solely used in Japan. In fact, it was originally invented in France and imported to Japan in the Meiji era, around 1870. Many barbers in my neighborhood still have this sign in front of the barber shops.
The company logo trademark is that of Gyudon (beef bowl) franchise restaurant in my neighborhood, so it has a cow inside the circle.
The spiral sign on the tad pole is a warning message for pedestrians, but I do not think many people pay attention to that sign.
Not related to this week theme, I included two photos I took yesterday when I was walking around to take Circle and Curve photos. We have a nice cherry blossoms this year. The typical Sakuras flowers stay in full bloom for only a few days. Many people surely go out to enjoy cherry blossoms in the West half of Japan. In the northern area, it is still cold and blossoms are waiting for spring to come.
