Maybe, just maybe, they're covering something up



I might be being too suspicious, but this lawn -- found by Tim -- seems quite green and lush. Very lush. Very, very, paste paste paste paste lush.

Did they do that in Microsoft Paint?

Egads...how about the vertical green line drawn over the house over there to the right? Strike one, using MSPaint. Strike two, using the "line" tool rather than the "spray paint" tool. Strike three, not knowing that "undo" is a valid option.

It looks like Stephanie beat me to it! I was going to comment how this isn't even the quality of Photoshop: it's the "airbrush" function of Microsoft Paint.

Or maybe they simply have uncreative graffiti artists and the local hardware store only had green paint...

Google street view gets so close to this property, but not close enough...

Is there really a neighborhood in Sydney called "Blacktown?" I can imagine what would happen if someone tried that here in Atlanta.

They all do the same thing ... when they are doing the paste,paste,paste thing, they forget that cars are usually parked on a DRIVEWAY, not on the grass!

I thought the photoshopped one from awhile back was pretty bad, but this takes the cake! The kelly green frosted cake!

The lawn looks like first generation astro-turf.

Tenant will stay if required???

Timber floors?

High side of the road? everyone on that side of the street is high?

Quelle de-luxe

"The current tenant is happy to stay on if required" YAY...roommates!

As for the "grass" yeah, they missed a few spots on the bottom of the picture.

Jessica said...

I think you're right, Ray, about the "pencil!" WHOOPS! "spray paint!"

Linnee said...

"Quality brick veneer" and generic astro-turf. I'm impressed.

Yes, there is a part of Sydney named Blacktown..I have actually been there, and the lawns are NOT that green..

You know, if you take a photo in winter when the grass is brown, just show it: everyone else in Australia knows it's winter.

For a second, I thought I'd stumbled over to the 'Cakewrecks' site! LOL!

er...why not go for gold and insert a nicer car while you're at it?

Just a guess about the "tenant sill stay if required": I'm thinking the landlord is selling his/her rental property.

Is it just me, or does the CAR look inordinately small compared to its closeness to the house?
Did they paste in that beauty too?
