No Photo Left Behind

Some sellers insist on including every photo taken of their home.  No matter what quality.  Here are some examples.

Yes, these are all actual photos used to promote the sale of these homes.  Can you tell what this photo is about?

Spy camera?

You’re supposed to use Head & Shoulders shampoo when showering.  But these 4 showers are so skinny, your shoulders would touch the sides.

Could you fit in this shower?

Help us rid this scourge of home decorating: the horrible knotted curtain!

Now people are adding knotted curtains as decoration in doorways!

A pair of scissors, please, so we can cut off the excess fabric and save our eyes from the knots.

Why knot up the curtains?  Why knot not let the drapes hang down on the sides of the windows?

There’s more fabric in the knot than in the rest of the curtain!  Why buy such big curtains for a small window?

Triple knotted?  Ridiculous.
