Messages are the subject for the Lens Artists challenge this week. Whether in nature, street signs, graffiti, shop signs or a message conveyed through an image, the choice is yours.
I have sought out signs and images taken in Cornwall which seem to me to illustrate the Cornish way of life and sense of humour.
Gulls, Cream Teas and Fishing are just some of the references to Cornish life.

Lovely collection of messages and thanks for the last one. If only I could get that here!
I really should have included a photo of a cream tea! And a pasty. Both evocative of Cornwall.
I do love that clotted cream! (And a genuine pasty) 🙂
Stealing lobsters in Newlyn must be lucrative, given how much they cost to buy now.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I don’t think I have had a lobster since my last visit to South Africa
Hi Jude. OK…I’ll take some clotted cream and ice cream, please! A wonderful collection.
Thanks Patti. It’s not the most healthy of diets. A good job I didn’t include the Cornish pasties too 🥟🥟🥟
I knew seagulls were chip thieves but I didn’t know they like ice cream too. Maybe Cornish gulls have sweet teeth! 🙂
They’ll take anything, including a sausage roll from a baby!
Great messages. Excellent.
Thanks John, glad you enjoyed them.
What a grand bunch of messages, Jude! When I worked at the tea shop in Illinois, we had clotted cream for those who wanted it but it was hellish to clean off!
A fun slice of local life Jude – loved all of the gull references!
Some great examples – and I love that ‘string of beads’ at the beginning. Makes a change from the usual balancing rocks.
Yes. I like that photo too. Might even get it printed.
Fun signage and that surprising string of beads. Well done, Jude. 😊
Thanks Jane. Those pebbles are beautiful.
As many Cornish people came to South Australia to settle, it’s no wonder that some of those expressions which are translated, have remained. We’ll, more or less. I can’t write what Pizen dawn has become as it isn’t polite, but now I know where it came from. Enough to say the second word is down and the ‘Z’ replaced by ‘ss’.
Cornish miners went all over the world when the mines closed here. And we use your version of pizzen dawn too. 😁
