Safe for who exactly?

Two great shots (well, three to be precise) lifted from my brother Simon's blog. The first was taken in Exeter, Devon. These are Safety Barriers I assume. Or maybe they're Danger Barriers.
The second pair of shots taken in his native Camborne show alternative - and equally odd - methods of attracting customers.
Visit Simon's blog here. He's a great photographer. Talented bastard.

I kind of like the laid-back attitude of the second guy in the pair.

CotW - You're right. The first guy is just trying too damned hard. I wondered whether the second guy was actually a time traveller as no one has written 'today' with a hyphen since around 1952. Mind you, this is Cornwall ...

No, I think he's advertising ballet classes. He's missed the 'e' out of 'toe'; they're clearly doing 'en pointe' (?), hence his stance and the need to prop himself up on the post.

Raph - I thought he looked a bit Samurai with that hair ...
