I took this photo in downtown Washington, D.C. today.
It was interesting to me for a number of reasons.
First, the amount and variety of advertising here (and there was more that is not even pictured here) was a little bit incredible, especially in light of the single customer at the stand.
Second, this vendor is buying the books back from the university students at a hotdog stand--yeah, more than a little weird, no?
Aside from the fact that students pay an exorbitant amout for textbooks and then get pennies on the dollar back, now you are encouraged to make your transaction with a street vendor in the cold of December.
Anyway, you think anyone will notice this cash for books stand? ;-)
