This reminds me of Alanis Morissette's song Ironic.

What a fantastic find. Yes, this captures the term irony perfectly, or, er... ironically. :lol:

Looks like the sign was effective! It even has braille for the blind smoker paying attention. Says "No Smok" (I think), but can't figure out the last symbol.

So I looked at the picture and started my ironic laugh because Irony... Then I said aloud, Why am I laughing? :oops: :lol:

(By the way, let's not overlook that it is a terrific stand-alone picture! Well done, Steve!)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Well spotted, framed and captured.

You've been putting up some nice images with isolated details. I like them, and the editing you're using. I sometimes have trouble with "simple" images that carry their own punch lines, but when you get it right, like here, it's pretty great.

It's amazing what you can find when you take the time to look and it's been fun! S-
