The sign said Welcome to Finsbury Park (a notoriously grim area of London) but most of the lights inside are broken, its covered in grafitti, its raining, dark, cold and miserable.

Plenty of people said they didn't understand. It must be me.

I'll have to be honest -- I have revisited this one several times, and I just don't get it... :(

???? I don't get it. And it really doesn't have an overall appeal because the lighting on the sign, maybe that's part of the irony?

I have a feeling this is a regional bit of irony. I like the light/colour on the pavement.

Ah this is British, I see the "Mind the Gap" on the platform, which I know so well from the Underground :-) I've been looking at it for a while though and I'm not too sure I get it, I'm going to have to come back to this one with a fresh mind. Maybe I'm just too stoopid :-)
