I have come to accept as a given that real estate agents selling ordinary, single family homes have absolutely no regard for photography. I don't remember the last time I saw real estate photo that did not look like a complete hack job (save those fancy, multimillion dollar homes on the other side of the tracks...). I'm pretty sure that most middle of the road real estate agents just go out to the site and photograph the home for sale themselves. It is so pervasive that I just tune it out.

But, then today, I was looking through the Walll Street Journal and right there on Page A-10, is one of the most shockingly crummy photos of a building I've ever seen printed in a news article. I understand that the WSJ has gone down hill since News corp took it over but...this is apalling...and the photo is credited to Getty Images...


I found the story on line....check it out for yourself...
