I thought I was so clever

when I had (and I SWEAR it was) an original idea to post some of the atrocious photos I see everyday in the MLS.

And then this weekend, I found this blog from Athol Kay, an agent in Connecticut. We started emailing, and he posted one of mine, so I'm going to post a link to a bunch of them that he's found over the LAST MANY MONTHS, which means my original idea was only original to me, and not unique at all :(

But, they're still funny, and his points about MLS photos are completely valid. At least I've always tried to post the best possible pictures for my listings.

Athol's remarks are sometimes even funnier than the pictures themselves. His comment on the picture above is "The carpet goes right to the wall…"

At least that's what always happens to me.

And... I promise more as I find them, even if I get in trouble.

Hi Jack.

Yup I get mock cursed out from another blogger about once a month for having their orginal idea first.

That being said, keep up the good work and the fight against the forces of poor photographic representation.

1.3 Million Realtors snapping photos. Ya know if everyone posts just one bad photo on the MLS each year... well we got more than enough bad photos to go round.
