    An empty Wal-Mart? Utopia? I can’t tell the difference!

    Hey, since when does neatness count?

    Mike Stewart: he can no longer tell if he’s coming or going.

    The real estate agent looks like he is homeless wandering the streets with his signs hoping to do an open house somewhere. Homeless real estate agents, a sign of the times?

    That Gaskers pic is awesome! Girl scout cookies pic looks like someone with a digital camera hit the button by accident. And the real estate agent pic…is that a really vintage camera or something? If so, great work. Otherwise I’m totally missing the artfulness of it apparently.

      @downwithmonstercable: Decapitated Girl Scouts ruin a photo, for sure.

      As I am the one who took the realtor pic it was taken on a Canon EOS 1v HS on Kodak slide film.

      This wasn’t (and isn’t) intended as “art”, it is part of a documentation project I am working on and when I saw the guy walk down the road it “fit in”.

      Check my flickr stream for other stuff I am doing. I have gone back to film in the last six months and have retired my analog cameras.

    Free Pleasure is irony at its best.

    Girl Scouts never pass by our neighborhood. :(

    Pleasure is outstanding. What a punch in the gut. Sorry to see it’s only doing slightly better than headless Girl Scouts.

    Damn! Caught me red-handed doing my thing!

    Don’t let Superman know where I am! I’m running low on Kryptonite and being a Realtor here in Vancouver is too much fun!

    Thanks for including me. Those pictures are gorgeous!
