Unintentionally Arty Photo
While I was thinking about making a post about people who plaster their faces on billboards, I snapped this photo near downtown with my new camera phone.
Though many might be pissed at the poor quality of the photo, it was taken at some distance, and I rather liked how it turned out.
You can still make out the Big Brother-like face of the realTOR (yet another irritant -- those commercials touting realTORs) on the sign. He works them there M streets. He isn't all that attractive. So why plaster your face 25 feet high for all to recoil at? Is it gaining or losing you customers? I'd bet on the latter.
There's another one of this guy, ESPN radio host Randy Galloway, around the corner from my house. I get a shock every time I round the bend and see it. Geeg.
It's got to be ego-driven. There's no other good reason.
And if I can't paint my garage door magenta, why in blazes is this allowed?
