ha ha on the poster!
Just dropping by to say hi!! I need to do some serious catching up! 😉
“One Fish, Et Al” is one of my family’s favorite Dr. Suess books. We all know most – if not all – of it by heart!
And I like the picture of “Nemo”… 🙂
Red enough for me, Leora. 😉 Cool shot.
I think it’s a clown fish.
I also have a fondness for old propaganda/public information posters.
Good identifying, Daniel. I do believe it is a clown fish.
Weirdest fish I ever saw. Can it actually swim??
The poster is a reminder of a time when things were exactly that grim.
Talking might kill soldiers or lead the enemy to bomb important factories etc.
Nowadays they’ll strike anywhere and kill innocent people en mass.
My mother had a hairdo about her style in ww2.
Orange fish! Is that a real poster? Is she real? Sorry don’t know her ^_^
Leora, the color of the fish is close enough! Pretty exotic! She’s like Tokyo Rose, right? 🙁
I had to look up Tokyo Rose – cool history. Glad it’s history.
The fish is a reddish orange 😉 So it works!
Ralph and I liked Pittsfield and its environs when we went there many years ago.
Re: the poster. The first thing I thought of was “Loose lips sink ships.”
The fish almost has the shape that will blend in with the other sea plants. Not so the bold colors, though! Wasn’t one of the search pair that searched for Nemo a clownfish? The red print makes the point that the picture did. Of course, I prefer italics to bold red for emphasis :>)
I have read about Loshon Hara. Very destructive indeed!
Great poster though.
Yes, I was thinking of using this poster as a starting point for a post on Loshon Hara – literally means bad language. But I just decided to let the poster speak, and see what others have to say.
Sometimes not talking can cost lives…
Fun post in all respects … gotta luv Dr. Seuss! Nifty rubies this week 😉
Hugs and blessings,
I pass the Pittsfield museum regularly, and will have to stop in for a look at this.
They have some lovely paintings at the museum – I liked one in particular of old Istanbul. That one might show up in a post some day.
the fish is red to me
the poster is a bit eerie
although I’d love to send a copy of it to every political pundit on the air
I would like to send it to the media in general – especially when they post about troops’ movements and other details that should not be publicly broadcast.
aww…i love clownfishes. This one’s a great capture! happy RT!
Very cool fish! Happy RT!
the poster–an incredible find!
the first photo looks like seafood platter to me (LOL).
Hahaha very nice.
Great shots, each of them – for different reasons of course!
Very colorful fish!
I like your colored fish, Leora. I may come back to see what others besides yellow and ruby red you have found. 🙂
Happy RT, thanks bunches for the party invite.
Cool, it’s a Nemo fish :).
That poster is something else.
Where’s that red fish swimming? Are those red mushrooms or what?
Wanted for Murder, hahaha!
It’s me, Melissa at Sunbonnet, who is now called Hasya Ya’ara.
I’m sorry. I thought I mentioned it in my comment to you.
It is my soon to be my given Hebrew name. The Rabbi will be blessing me with it soon.
Thank you for writing on my new blog.
Aha – two people taking on the name Ya’ara would be quite a coincidence! Thanks for the clarification, Melissa.
hehhehe fun post! cute nemo 🙂
u may view mine here
What a neat shot! I always loved that book, as do my children and my grandchildren.
Orange derives from red! Close enough! What a fun shaped fish! Bold and striking! And the poster reminds me of Vivian Leigh’s face! That makes it quite disturbing when you think of the film ‘Gone With the Wind’!
Yes, she does look a bit like Vivian Leigh, doesn’t she? A classic look.
That poster is a variation on the WWII theme of “Loose lips sink ships”.
Japan had Tokyo Rose. Nazi Germany had both Axis Sally and “Lord Ha Ha” broadcasting Nazi propaganda to the Allies.
That looks like a clown fish…..Interesting poster…
