Please is a nice touch!
Picturit: Don't you just love it. This was written on the wall of the house, not even a sign....I like the 'please' too.... Amsterdam people are very nice and polite wink
Well that's a nice request!
Picturit: Don't you just love it... written on the wall...
HA! The first time I've ever seen such a request. smile
Picturit: Me too, Ginnie. What made me look twice is that it is written on the wall.... not even on a sign...

Why is is in English, Astrid?
Picturit: In Amsterdam are more than 811.185 people living and 180 different nationalities, the most in the world. English might be the language most people know.

No signs written at the wall, please! I think there are some bad experiences.
Picturit: See it positive, Philine. If it was a sign, it might fly away in the strong winds...
Clearly they think English cyclists are the offenders
Picturit: Absolutely, they blame the English for everything even when they are not guilty grin.... One needs to be blamed, don't you think??

Oh alright then! I'll take it indoors instead. A new one on me, I've seen signing telling people not to attach bikes to railings with threads of them being cut free and removed.
Picturit: I might think that is a good idea, bicycles indoors are more safe than outdoors and yes they will be cut free and removed. There is often a warning in Amsterdam near the trainstation. Most of the time they give you a few weeks to remove the bikes.

That will save people from looking in there for bikes Astrid.
Picturit: I doubt that will find a bike there.... but you never know of course, this IS Amsterdam, every thing is possible.
And with a nicely hidden sig smile
Picturit: HA, you found it... I really had to scribble that one with a marker grin..
Very nice printing on this permanent sign. Good choice for Monday.
Picturit: I thought so too and it was done with a tiny marker I think. Thank you, Mary. I am always at the outlook to find something special.

It makes me wondered what happened to prompt the sign.
Picturit: There was a small hedge and maybe they threw bikes against it as a stand.... which is often done in the Netherlands. This place was also at a narrow corner.
they make their point well enough Astrid... it's a nice looking hedge....petersmile
Picturit: It is and they want to keep it nice, my guess.
I like these minimalist shots, simple yet refined.
Picturit: Thank you, Claudio. Sometimes we need to keep it simple.
Love the handwriting! For some reason this just made me giggle!
Picturit: Indeed, Robin. I looked at the sign and it was so odd/strange/different from what I am 'used' to see in Amsterdam. And the handwriting is most beautiful. The hedge was well kept also wink.
