This is as close to irony as I could get. Shot through the windshield at 60 mph (I was a passenger of course). Glad we didn't get fined!

Yeah really, how do you get the maximum fine? Not even doing all three offences will get you that much. And isn't reckless driving the same as speeding and tailgaiting put together? Definitely a huh? sign. Good choice.

Note to admins: This photograph is part color, part b/w, so why wasn't it disqualified like mine was?

Good colors, I like the B/W.

Ok, I have to defend this as a Transportation Planner :) Oh, nevermind. I do like the desaturation here. It really brings out the sign.

Maybe there are several speed cameras? Interesting shot for irony, but a bit too snapshot for my taste. Nice use of desat though. 6

Math 101. Funny.

I love signs, dont you?

I like the b&w with the brigh orange. The color make the irony all the greater. I wish it had a bit more dimension - iterally and figuratively. Something meaning ful in the foreground or background would capture my interest more,

Doesn't quite add up, does it.

I see those are two signs right? I like the way you lined them up there. You have a good eye, I usually don't see things like this.

more ridiculous than ironic.
