We do things differently


(pictures by c o p i t o d e n i e v e from Argentina)

Some of my favourite pictures I've stumbled upon this week. Too good not to share :)

Also, just a note: I always think of this because my macbook so kindly highlights it with that annoying line of red dots, but for my international readers- please don't think I'm a bad speller! In New Zealand we have the letter U in a lot of words that you don't put it in in America (and possibly other countries??)

For example: we spell honor as honour, favorite as favourite, humor as humour etc etc you get the idea!

I just wanted to point it out because spelling is actually very important to me (English was always my favourite subject) and I hate the thought that people could think I'm misspelling these words all the time! 

Ok rant over :)

  4. I know what you mean. I spell that way too, and it annoys me when those little red dots appear telling me to get rid of the U!

  5. Beautiful photographs. The last two I find especially inspiring. Ps, we Englanders also spell the same way as you. :)

  6. Great photos to wake up to! And those red dots are awful - we have similar "British style" spelling in Canada. I've had so many arguments with Yanks over what's proper - the 'u' is correct here, and they should acknowledge that when they're here! oy.

  7. I love the triangles in the two middle pictures!!
    Don't worry, I understand your correct spelling ;)
    I find it more annoying that some places still use imperial mathematics.
    I mean, using a system based on the length of a person's foot once upon a time. As well as radioactive decay that once person measured once, before fine scientific equiptment.
    It's especially annoying when all your textbooks come from an imperial system.

  8. LOL European spells certain words with 'u' while American don't. You should get that red dots fixed though (if they gathered too much).

  11. You should read italian!! I'm italian, and I love english: trust me, italian is the most difficult language to learn. That's why english is so easy to learn for italians!

  19. I spell the words that way too.. That's the British way I was told, however, can't you set the spelling bee (or what you call it :)) to NZ? Or is that not on macs?

    Anyway, nice pictures, love the style.

  20. That's how we spell in England as well. And seeing as English obviously originated in England... you are spelling the right way and everyone else is spelling wrong! haha :) xxx

  21. i've just done my first flickr faves friday, yay! yes totally know what you mean with the spelling. the same thing happened with 'z' and 's' - for instance socialise vs socialize.

  22. Grr! I hate the red dots under the words especially when I know the spelling is fine. As much as I hate spelling mistakes I think what irks me more is the pronunciation of words like somefink, very aggravating.

  23. Most computers allow you to change the variation of English so you get English or New Zealand spelling rather than US. That will get rid of the little red dots when you correctly put a U but also keep the dots from other words eg traveller (which has only one L in US spelling).
