Maybe. In a lot of my shots that include ambiguous/silly/illiterate signs, after a moment you say, Oh, I get it now, or Oh, now I see what they *meant* to say.

But this one is utterly opaque to me. I haven't the foggiest notion what meaning the sign is supposed to convey.

One of my favorite things to do with a photograph is to include a word or two that will give yet another meaning to the image. I really like this photo with the "dangerous" sign included. Very nice Carl! Mike

Thanks, Mike. I sometimes think of these as "self-captioning" pictures. Actually I try not to overdo it and turn it into a predictable cliche. But when a picture can contain words that are a surprise, it's hard to resist.
