Defiance - Waimea Bay by IsacGoulart Defiance - Waimea Bay by IsacGoulart
i thought this was a pretty funny picture.. here i was photographing people jumping off the rock, completely ignoring the "warning" sign.. speaks loads about the human nature.. our driving need to defy.

Defiance - Waimea Bay by `isacg shows that signs aren't for everyone, just like jumping off hugeantic cliff side rocks aren't for everyone. A great photograph wrapped in a funny story, presented to you by isacg. ( Suggested by JacquiJax and Featured by zerocomplex )

Kaua'i does rock. It has some wacky signage, right now i'm thinking of some i saw along the Alaka'i Swamp Trail... I'm going to have to post an unusual trail marker sign from along that route...

Love the juxtaposition of your photo... sweet work

yeah they took off the sign like the day after i shot this, cuz i went back later that week and it was gone.. kinda ironic. i was probably one of the last guys to photograph it.

perfect timing for the guy diving/reactions of those still on the cliff :)
only thing I have against it is probably the size of the vignette, other than that...the tones & everything else is spot on!

Really, I don't get why people do stupid things when signs tell them not to. They think that risking death and maiming is funny... until they get crippled. Ha ha.
