The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo, and for May, that theme happens to be Laugh. Take a look at how others are handling this theme right here.
For this theme, I thought first of the restaurants that tend to have chalkboard signs at their entrances with funny sayings. My first pair I originally put up at Facebook after taking them, since I would have been deep into various series at the time and wasn't posting them here. This sign was out in front of a shop in the Glebe after the Brexit referendum.
And this one in front of a restaurant in the Glebe dates back to the fall of 2016.
These are more recent. I photographed this one at Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, a toy store in the Glebe, in February.
This was up the street outside a restaurant around the same time.
Another Glebe restaurant had this outside their entrance at Valentine's.
One evening heading home through the Glebe I photographed signs outside two restaurants.
And this was taken in the later part of March.
Still in the Glebe, Sweet Bite, a bakery that specializes in wedding cakes, has a mock up one in their front window. The bride and groom topper suited this theme nicely.
To finish, I decided to add text to a classical religious painting via the Imgflip site. Christ And The Adulteress is an oil painting by Lucas Cranach the Elder, dating around 1535-40 and part of the collection of the National Gallery of Canada. I took this photo during a 2017 visit. The second take, of course, is my skewered sense of humour, with some adapted dialogue from Conan The Barbarian.
The Sisters Of Little Or No Mercy would not be impressed with me.
