W/NW Cheap visual irony

Bronx Zoo 2010


Epson R-D1s @ ISO 200 with Canon 28/2.8 LTM @ f/8

(Sorry for the blown highlights - water/fake ice in bright sunlight, you know how it goes....)

So far it seems that irony involving signage is particularly cheap/easy. Interesting....

Take that, Harley-Davidson:
(This decal was on the hood of my '89 Chevy Silverado pickup when I bought it. The decal already was peeling; I helped it a little bit. It's not that I dislike H-D - I like H-D's. It's that I don't like trademark decals.)

Love that shot, Petronius. How long did you have to wait for a reaction to the poster?

This also works in German only...

PS: It's tough to read @ the allowed resolution.
The ad reads: "Jetzt geht's los! Den Frühling gibt's bei OBI."
A rough translation would be: "It's on! Spring's for sale at OBI."

Somebody needs a whupping!

That is a fine, cheap shot right there, and with two scooters in the foreground, it is even better. (My wife and I ride Kymco People S 250s.)
