Shop fronts & shop signs are my themes for this week, but why do these seem so much more attractive abroad than in Britain? Or is it something to do with being on holiday and looking for different photo opportunities?
A shop window in St. Wolfgang, Austria caught my eye with this display of onions and peppers - followed my more colourful, crowded Austrian frontages.
The Austrians have such a wonderful tradition of decorative shop sign to entice us inside.

And after all that shopping, look out for a restaurant:

Just to show a Scottish example. I liked this fun drawing of a Highland Cow on a sign in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull.
