Isn't that the weirdest way to illustrate a story? Do you think that maybe it was a last-minute emergency photo deadline muffed, so they had to just photograph the shoe store across the street from their regional office? Look! They're having a sale! OMG economic meltdown! Perfect!
Seriously, so weird. And a terrible, terrible photo! I'm totally, like, whatever.
