Enter? - Do Not Enter? Choices...... The sign on the barrier encourages you to "Enter" but the doorway specifically states "Do Not Enter" - What are you going to do on an October night???

I found this at a small carnival in Fort Worth during the Stock Show. *I juxtaposed this with the lens to give an interesting perspective!
