What's so Ironic about this picture? Let me explain. THis was shot in downtown Salt lake City, Utah at the end of Main and South Temple street. As you can see there is a statue of Brigham Young, the Mormon Pioneer, LDS mormon profit, who discovered Utah, etc. I just think it's REALLY ironic that when they build everything around it, they have the statue of Brigham with his hand towards the Bank and his back towards the temple. I guess if you lived here long enough, you'd see the irony.

Please view in high res before voting, thank. (5 years and 2489 days ago)

I agree, very ironic. You'd think they'd move the statue or at least turn him around...great pano btw

There's a lot about Mormons that's ironic if you're familiar with their history. Good catch on this one

Yeah, I know all too well about all the irony in the Mormon church.
