Thanks for all the comments on my Opposites entry, 'Country Town Originality'.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/215/thumb/75668.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/215/thumb/75668.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This was taken whilst I was on holidays in New Zealand. We were driving through a small country town called 'Clinton'. It was just such strikingly unoriginal street naming that I had to get a shot. Later, I got on the web at an internet cafe, saw that the current challenge was 'Opposites', and decided to enter this shot.

Yes, there are sharpening/artifact problems with the sign, but unfortunately I processed the shot with unfamiliar software at the internet cafe, with time running out on my hours net access, so I lived with it :)

(Oh, and an interesting snippet - I mentioned the town was called 'Clinton'. There is a nearby town called 'Gore'. The road linking them is called the 'Gore-Clinton Highway', and recently added, the 'Presidential Highway'!)
