They're Blind to Its Futility

One of the things I really enjoy about Montreal in the autumn is the outdoor photography exhibitions on Avenue McGill College. Every year, the city sponsors local photographers to exhibit their work on a series of big outdoor boards that run along the main street running up to the McGill campus. On a nice, sunny day, strolling up the avenue and admiring the pictures is a very pleasant thing to do, indeed.

In true exhibition form, the photos are exhibited alongside little placards discussing their significance, usually relating to the broad theme of the exhibition. Since this year's theme is 'Je lis Montreal', some hack obviously decided it would be a good idea to post Braille versions of the placards, so that all the blind people admiring the visual arts exhibition wouldn't feel left out.

Sigh.
