Lauren Aldridge: "I love this picture that I took at Borough Market, although it still confuses me... not quite sure what they were selling at a food market! The vibrant colours made me keep it as one of the few snaps from the day, and it continues to mildly amuse me now."

Laura Clark: "I love the art scene in Florence, both the world famous and the street art. There are lots of road signs that have been altered by local artist Clet Abraham. He has taken his work to other cities, including London and Paris, but the councils tend to remove it. In Florence, the attitude is more relaxed, and these witty signs can be found all over the city."

Bill Reeds: "I couldn't drive straight after seeing this road sign on a bend, in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand."

Clara Vullo: "Walking along one afternoon, I noticed these signs on the pavement and thought, 'Why not?' and I positioned myself on the nonexistent bike. Straight away, without questioning anything, my friend followed me with this weird idea of a photo."
