Avoid Falls


This sign was painted over twice in the past,
leaving stair-goers clueless about proper stairwell etiquette and safety.
Years of neglect and the weathering of the elements deteriorated the steps
while simultaneously revealing the ancient warning.
Everything falls into place in perfect synchronicity,
sparing one casual explorer a turbulent trip to the cellar.

    Excellent composition – beautifully rendered. Time has a great sense of the ironic cut and we are all victims of his/her blade. :)

  2. I remember when I was young everyone took the stairs like gentlemen. Now, kids just take them in groups, two at a time, all higgledy-piggledy and anyhow. We need more signs like this to make America great again.
