A bit of a weird one this week, folks. An interesting display in a department store. The box in the lower left corner says "Do it Daily!" (I have no idea what the product is) and the one with "dear" on it is sort of a Dear John letter regarding the fact this cream is better than any others or something like that. Like I said - weird. But I thought it kinda intriguing. Your mileage may definitely vary!

:) !!! Your photography tells such interesting stories. Everything has wonder in your work. I love it. And this looks great in black and white. Clean. Crisp. PERFECT!

A quirky shot for sure, what a perculiar display. So many eyes in the shot, very funny. You always have a way of capturing the teh everday items we always pass by without a glance.

Got confused for a minute - seeing somebody mention scores! Interesting shot, as others have said, I probably wouldn't have thought of shooting this at all.

Another standard snap-shot, with a little imbalance in the contrasts and some over exposure on the foreground display. Looks like an average trip to the mall, but it's a 4 in my book. Darken this a bit, expose the foreground more accurately to bring it up to a 5.

nicely done, the people in the background give it a candid feel that otherwise would not exist.

I wouldn't have thought to take pictures of a display like this. I'm always trying to think of something interesting to shoot. Usually I dismiss things and move on. Maybe I shouldn't since it works out here nicely. Great job.

Do people look at your strangely when you're taking pictures of seemingly random stuff? Nevermind that, people look at me strangely when I'm taking pictures of people in the park. Nosy I guess. I always wonder what store personnel might say to me if I were carrying a camera in a store.

This is certainly weird and interesting. I like how the whole display is pretty much high key, and yet the others side is regular B&W, with both sides separated by a diagonal. So one side is weird and other is normal. Good eye for catching this.

I like the inclusion of the boy in the background, a very nice display of the oddness that can be found around any bend.
