This weeks Theme is Advertisement
Go to to participate

I clearly couldn't picture myself having a photo of an advertisement for this photo hunt. But I ended up finding many photos in my archives from Switzerland that passed without much searching.

I figured I would head outside and see what I could find. Here are just 4 of the many photos I found within seconds.

A Telus advertisement on the side of the car, definitely Canadian.

An advertisement on the side of a car for beer.

What a beautiful advertisement!

And my prised photo of the hunt, the Google Street View Car. It found me. And I just happened to have my camera out. I'm guessing I also got my photo taken by it too.

Of course I planned on doing a collage but ran out of time. Maybe I still will, as I just loved this photo hunt!

Happy Hunting. Today is my 2 year date since immigrating to Canada.


  1. You did a great job with this theme. I wasn't sure how it would go for me but with the theme in mind I just shot a bunch of pictures this week. It was fun.

  2. I'm not into advertisements. They are everywhere in my daily life. :)

  3. Advertisements are more of a hunt to find here in Victoria, and I quite like that... There aren't any billboards but of couse on the sides of buildings or on store front windows from posters.. :)

  4. Congrats on your 2 years. Did you already apply for citizinship? Pics are really nice too. Do you actually know I would love Canada, would just crossed the age limit for the work immigration. Oh well. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs across the pond. xx

  5. Congratulations on your second anniversary as a Canadian resident.

    It's really interesting to see what people show today for the theme.

  6. Excellent shots Expat. I did not even know that a Google earth car existed. I shall have to google it to find out more.

    Happy weekend to you.

  7. What a great collection. Sounds like a fun hunt for you and I can't believe you found the Google Earth car!

  8. Nice take on the theme and so many great advert shots! Congratulations on two years in Canada

  9. Great choices!!

    Love the entrance ad! I thought it was a window at first glance! :)
    COOL! Happy Weekend!

  14. What in the world is the Google Street car? Holy, now I have to go look it up, actually "Google" it! Cool! My hunt is up, please come and visit

  15. The Waterfront one is really cool!

    Is it me or Canadians do like to advertise on their cars? I noticed that in Ottawa too. Must be a popular way to get the message around...

  16. Love the waterfront advertisement and think the Telus advertisement is very quick. Well I like it. But most interesting is the picture of that Google Street View Car. Never knew it went like that. Thanks for sharing.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

  17. The Waterfront ad is wonderful and the Google is a scoop;))
