Waiting, Isle of Man TT

                      Not the queue to the pub

It's ABC on the blog circuit this week ad the letter is Z. If you look closely on the image you can see black and white stripes midway in the photo across the road. Those are where pedestrians wait to cross the road safely, and it is called a Zebra crossing. Many countries have these, nothing unique to the island, but use of varies throughout the world. A instantly recognizable image that transcends most languages. The image taken at the two week event, Isle of Man TT Road Races. This may look like the queue for a pint from the pub in the distance, The Central, but the spectators waiting on Parliament Street for the motorbike race to begin.

I haven't heard of it called that way here in California. But I know of it thru bloggers like you.

I've heard it called that here. Very effective in black and white.

I always think of Abbey Road, for some obscure reason.

We also call it zebrapad( zebra path), which is a safe crossing place.
Thanks for your visit. Yes, Zeus was a real ladykiller! And will probably not be interested in the financial problems Greece has to deal with.

It's there here in my city too, but the effectiveness is something I'm not really sure about just yet :P :) It looks different in a B&W photo for sure!

There would be zero tolerance of using this during a at race.
