#297-365 Spelling Errors


Possibly my longest stretch of a theme yet! Found this one very tough to fill as the common gimmick used bt Advertisers of misspelling things to draw the attention seemed passe. So I took this shot, did a slight HDR effect on it then remembered that it is the New South Wales Department of Education Building down in Bridge Street (named for the bridge over the Tank Stream which supplied early Sydney Town with fresh water - Not the Harbour Bridge which wasn't built until the 1930's) near Circular Quay in Sydney, and as you can see it is a very old building by Australian standards being continuously occupied in that role since 1881. Well my hypothesis is that this single building is responsible for at least 95% of the misspelling that had occured in the state since its inception. Top That - You Guys.

Now Ron, how do we know that is not just one of your stories, prove it! :) LOL

Love the HDR on this and all the classic lines!

I have yet to post this theme because every time I see a word it doesn't seem bad enough to call attention to. I am waiting to see a banner in a grocery window or something big. I may have to resort to education, too, since my DD is a 6th grade teacher.

Way to stretch a theme, Ron.

You mean "colour" for "color" and that sort of thing!?! Neat building.
