Here's the first photo of my trip. What's wrong with this picture? (Specifically, what's wrong with the lower picture?)

Ooo, a Spot the Differences game! Bob Weber Jr would be proud!

Y'know, if you turned the bottom one rightside so the Japanese characters are proper, then the leaves are upside down ...

I think you're tiltin' again. By about 180 degrees this time.

Hey, Jackla Jod -- great news!

I think I like Guns N' Roses better now.

I'd like to say that I was creative enough to come up with this on my own, but I'm not :3 There are a few little scripts online that will do this for you. Here's the one I used: http://www.revfad.com/flip.html

Maple, I think. There are species of maple that have leaves that shape. I remember joking that one was a marijuana tree. ;)

You people can tell? I can barely make out shapes other than leaves in the lower picture.

I think I didn't have that option at work, for some reason.

Apart from the red background, the top has large swooping lines and gold letters, the bottom has gold and green leaves(which really screw up the color scheme) and black letters. They are obviously mismatched, but there's nothing wrong with upside-down words in a painting. It would be a problem if it were an exit sign or other important marker.

Ooh, how embarrassing.

Whether the mistake is intentional or not, it does remind me of the upside-down calligraphy and the prince of Gong. ("We're not illiterate! We meant to put it upside down! It's, uh, symbolic!")
