Deceptive signs

Our new locality is much richer in street art than our old. Here are a couple of signs that made me look twice, and then a third time.

The first is out the front of a service station in Enmore Road.

It took a third look to realise that the erotic genie is actually pasted onto the bright red container, and that the information inside probably has nothing at all to do with magic or heart-shaped female pudenda.

I was drawn to the cool irony of this one until I realised that it wasn’t intended by the sign creator, but a side effect of the different fading rates of different coloured inks.
