FOR SALE: From the creator of the viral blog sensation TerribleRealEstateAgentPhotos.com,
a book of the most baffling property photographs ever taken. With over 100 previously unpublished photos, early viewing is STRONGLY recommended.
The mantra 'location, location, location' often concerns buying a house, but some estate agents would do well to apply it to their photography. Should one, for instance, locate the camera in front of a fossilised garden chair? An overflowing ash tray? An elderly relative hustling out of shot? Has thought been spared for the location of that dirty underwear? Those psychedelic curtains?
Out of touch with realty, less Rankin and more plain rank, some of the worst offenders should perhaps consider relocating to another industry. Luckily for us, they haven't yet.
The mystifying property photographs gathered here are an endless source of confusion, confusion, confusion, frustration, frustration, frustration and, perversely, satisfaction, satisfaction, satisfaction.

Andy Donaldson was born and grew up on the outskirts of Aberdeen in Scotland. His previous published works are so far limited to a 2003 Scottish 2nd division match report of Arbroath v Alloa Athletic. Arbroath came from behind to win 3-1. He lives in a pleasant 2 bed with an open aspect and far reaching views in an up-and-coming area of London. Good use has been made of the space.
