Two thoughts as I photographed this young lady costumed as the Statue of Liberty with a billboard sign advertising a tax accounting agency: 1) marketing has definitely changed with the economic downturn as more and more businesses have been employing similar methods (though usually for 'out of business' sales) and 2) the countdown to getting my own taxes done is quickly approaching (yikes!!). Then, while uploading the image, I had a third and fourth thought - I should have invented those ubiquitous earbuds... and I wonder how soon this generation will start showing hearing loss!

  1. I'm glad I don't have to do this for a living. Sad how it is the gimmick that gets people's attention. Marketing sometimes takes precedence over quality.

  2. Oh what people will do to sell a product or service.
