I’m Jean Barker… I’m a third generation South African and afropositive and no, that’s not a disease – more of a positive social virus that I hope will infect more of the world. I’m a writer who worked for 13 years as a journalist (most in entertainment and features writing), as an editor of SA’s top entertainment site, and a freelancer too. I’m now studying Screenwriting in California, risking it all for the dream. What else am I gonna do, right? I take photos off odd, interesting, funny or relevant signs I see wherever I am and blog about them. Send photos, if you have something, with a caption or the story behind it (please, no email forwards and no embedded pictures, and you must own them!) to email@example.com with your blog address or website address. I’ll publish and link to you (if I like the picture).
The photos on this blog are mostly my own. I tend to take them with my cellphone – not cause I don’t know how to use my 60D, but because I’m not usually carrying it around when I see a sign or scene I like. Now and then someone sends me a photo or I ask to blog someone’s facebook picture, or I use something from a news site. All photos that aren’t mine are credited, and almost all used with permission. If you find anything you think isn’t, email me.
