What Were They Thinking? #6 in a series

Spotted this feathered friend while searching listings in Ahuntsic for a client this morning. The photo was tucked among 21 generic interior photos for a bungalow on Jean-Massé St.
What do you suppose the agent was getting at with this pic? Believe me, the process for loading photos onto the GMREB's Matrix system is laborious and multi-stepped with any number of opportunities to make sure that stray canary (and nude) photos aren't accidentally posted on the Web.
Not that I haven't been known to play little jokes for my own amusement. Last year, when photographing a new listing, I made a point of positioning the public speaking trophy my best friend won in high school in nearly every room photo when I listed her parents' house for sale. I sent her the listing and challenged her to play "Where's Waldo?" with the trophy. We both a had a laugh.
I did not, however, take a photo of her trophy and include it among the pictures showcasing the house.
I might be a wiseacre, but I'm not an idiot.

  1. Great post! I spotted that photo when looking through listings for Ahuntsic and after laughing for several minutes (and showing this listing to almost everyone I know) I asked myself that same question "What were they thinking?!"
