cobblestone catwalk

I know this sign is supposed to warn well shod women (or in my neighbourhood, men) about the dangers of uneven pavement, but it also reminds me of a famous Guy Bourdin image:
In Canada, we have signs warning drivers of large, antlered animals that might at any moment leap into the road- even in the city. In Paris, there are stilletoes (and the only antlered creatures likely to cross paths with you are wearing McQueen).
