Inspired by Anabel!

Anabel of the Glasgow Gallivanter has me inspired to trawl through my archives to find some Ghost signs!

Happening upon one of her posts recently, where she posted a number of such signs, I thought – I’ve got a few of those! Not that many, and it’ll take some doing, but a small project for the gloomy months!

So, to kick off, here’s one from Italy, a good few years ago:

Old shutters and a Ghost sign, Siena, Tuscany, Italy

I also need to try and take a couple of images from the train, where I have noticed some faded lettering.


  1. And the fading wall colour nicely matches the sign.

  2. Have you used a texture layer for this one, Sue?
    My email is hannesiebers(at) 🙂
    Stay safe in teh storm! x

      No texture layer, Dina…nearly as shot 11 years ago….I spotted it from the hotel terrace, I think. How’s the storm where you are? And thanks for the email, I’ll drop you a line some day soon

  3. I really like the colours in this one, Sue.
    (We had a tremendous hailstorm here today. The fields are still white from it, and Ollie and I were soaked on our walk. 18-20 miles south of Dina and KB’s place)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Oh, that was a surprise to spot my name! Very colourful ghost sign.

  5. I like the name “ghost signs” and I liked your choice.


  6. What a great project. Looking forward to seeing your collection.
