Finding Beauty in Advertising Around The World

While most of the time it can annoy us, there are occasions when advertising can be beautiful. I suppose that’s the reason why ADVERTISING is the theme for this week’s FriFotos photo sharing event. In the spirit of the theme, here are some of my favorite examples of advertising from around the world.

Shibuya Crossing
Ads in a South African township
Avignon France
Advertising the deals of the day in France
Beer ads in Cambodia
Hard to imagine Hong Kong without ads
Berlin Germany
Only in Berlin…
