In case that you rather like to follow this site on twitter or in case you think I tend to write too much for your liking, you can now follow my adventures and other related stuff, in a shortened version on twitter - @visual_dyslexia
In case you didn't believe me, here is the proof of my first tweet. From now on in I will also make the twitter world unsafe with me dyslexic gibberish.
Got myself a nice zoom lens too, which means I can get much closer to my beloved signs now. To celebrate the purchase of my new camera gear I am posting pictures from my first few days with my new 'third eye'. In fact above is the very first picture taken with my new camera. I used the zoom lens to photograph from across the road, perfect!
This is one of my absolute favourite ghost signs located on Fairfield Road, Kings Heath. There are quite a few Twinings ghost signs still around in Birmingham these days, you can find more here.
Found this message on a wall in Kings Heath, although still somewhat clear, I am most sure why it is there.
This ghost sign, former shop sign was revealed recently when the new shop owners dismantled a marquess that covered it. A beautiful glimpse into the past of Kings Heath.
This image is a close up of a fence around a building side in the Jewellery Quarter which was dysmanteled shortly afterwards.
There are many blue plaques around across the UK, most of them in very good condition, this one urgently requires an updated.
This is also in the Jewellery Quarter advertising a pizza restaurant (which I do not recommend btw.).
The remaining pictures are...wait...yes you have guest right from my recent trip to Cambridge.
I hope that is clear, they do neither like motorcycles nor the letter 'O' in Cambridge.
The back of a JD Weatherspoon called The Tivoli which was on fire in March, here is a link to a local news report .
Another fading ghost sign, sadly almost gone
Since starting to record visual dyslexic signs nearly a decade ago now, I have become more and more fascinated with the impact the elements have on vinyl signage, some time soon I will devote a post specific to those 'newly-formed' fonts.
Sounds like a rather spiky and uncomfortable ride...
This sign has not only completely grown into a bush, it is in its' current state complete gibberish.
Only 'lower-body' people allowed to the right, black cycles only to the left please.
