photos of numbers :: 56, 9 & 4

Katie | December 7, 2012

Hello and happy Friday! They say inspiration can come from anywhere and in the case of this week’s first number, South West Trains was the unlikely source of this delightful piece of retro type.

For the second photo, I was on a hunt for a number 9 for another project and a friend spotted a date that, with the month obscured, was just perfect! This picture still makes me smile. And finally I loved the contrast of the official looking yellow and black 4 with the green parkland behind.

Have a fab weekend!
