Flickr photo of the day: In search of irony

Michael Clemmer

In a few moments these young women, dressed in traditional court dance costumes, will perform to traditional music played on ancient instruments such as the jakhae, saw sam sai and ranat thum. Until then, however, they enjoy modern technology and touch up their makeup.

This image by Phil Radbourne, captured in Bangkok, Thailand, is a good example of keeping an eye out for irony. Although dress and customs may differ greatly, people are much the same, wherever we go.
