A modest proposal

August 13th, 2007

And, no, it’s not about eating children, it is actually a modest proposal.

Or, rather, a proposal about modesty.

Housing advertisements everywhere use idealized images. That’s understandable. However, I think it would be nice if, instead, all housing advertisements were required to photoshop busy, ugly surroundings around the houses, instead of the non-existent green fields and blue skies that proliferate.

That way, instead of having an incredibly unrealistic portrayal like this:

Advertised House

You’d have a far more accurate, if slightly off in the details, portrayal like this:

Real House
