photos of numbers :: 91, 100 & 16161

Katie | January 4, 2013

This week’s numbers are all from my recent trip to Thailand, from Phuket Town specifically, and even more specifically, from the metal shutters of the street-side shops. I was struck by the retro typeface and the Chinese colours in the first one.

I suspect a template of some sort has been used to create “gallery 100” – I always think letters and numbers created in this way look like they’ve got their eyes shut! And I’m not sure whether this last one is 111 / 66 or 16161, but I like it! Have a great weekend!
