I “almost” hate to say this, but I find it somewhat charming.

In all the work I have displayed, gallery or museum, charming was not what I had in mind.

Found this on the outside wall of a pro photographer's shop in a small village in Italy.

Ah, it's the red ribbons that raise it above the "charming" level, perhaps to "charming+."

There's a serious note to this: imagine trying to earn your keep at that level. Better off growing olives. If you own some land. If you own a lot of land and a family of fierce and hungry pigs, there's always the alternative rural business of being the guy who provides the "clean-up" services to the local mafiosi. Never a trace. Don't bother with Sardinia, if you feel expansive; they have that covered since forever, at least from the 50s. I suppose you could partly blame the Agah Khan for providing some local snatch-me marks in his coastal development... but anyway, Rome was full.

I suppose that if you invite the glossy-gossip mags into your life, then your commercial gets read further afield than you may have expected...

Creative!  I use Bucky Balls to hang photos in the metal walls in my hallway at work (one at each corner).  I would attach a pic but photography is prohibited in our building.

That building has a lot of common sense. It's a safety feature: people always rush back into the fires to collect a photographic memento or two and then the building would find itself in court facing a compensation and/or liability claim, just because of some pesky snaps! I like intelligent buildings. They take it from the architect - or otherwise, depending on the architect.
