Photo Friday: Words

Day 142 – December 11, 2011

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another photo theme to be unveiled by Photo Friday.

Once again, they do not disappoint in the department of creativity and variety. I have been enjoying these photo challenges more than mere words can express, which is appropriate as the theme for this week is “words“.

My offering shows the straightforward advice offered by the authorities of Parque de las Leyendas, the combination zoo, botanical garden, and archeological site that sits in the downtown of Peru’s capital city.

Outside one of the animal enclosures is this sign…

Warning sign outside jaguar site

Plain and simple…the way all warnings should be

As best I (and Google Translate) can figure out, the translation reads as follows:

If you step across the barrier, you can get hurt. Do not do it.

The reason for the warning can be found in the upper right of the picture.

That’s a jaguar.

I don’t know if the sign actually says it and I mis-translated, but I believe the wording should be changed from “you can get hurt” to “you will get hurt”.
