I Thought It Said Paris

I was looking up at a broadcasting tower trying to photograph it when I noticed this neon sign. "Oh, great! A couple of letters are out so it reads " Paris," and what a coincidence that there is a huge metal tower behind it! Eric will get a kick out of this." Snap, snap, snap. When I got home and uploaded the photos, my husband was kind enough to point out my wishful perception. Oh my. I'm losing it. Tomorrow I'll show you something else humorous that was at street level below this sign.

hehe its funny..its a bit similar to the situation when I see the word GYORS (fast) written on buses in Budapest. Very easy to read it as GYROS which is a Greek food:)

This photo caught my eyes too while I was browsing the portal. I really thought it said Paris.

Besides I love the photo in itself; I love neon signs!

I too thought it said Paris, and I didn't realize that it didn't until I looked closely and though, "re-paris, that doesn't make sense".

Oh, well. Really nice photo and a lovely shot.

tu as raté de peu un voyage à Paris, tu n'iras visiter que Pairs ;o) les neons peuvent être vraiment surprenant.


you missed by little a voyage to Paris, you will visit only Pairs ;O) neons can be really surprising.

It worked for me too, shows how strong the power of suggestion is! It would be a fantastic sample for a research on the subject.
