  1. Several years ago the back page of our local newspaper featured an ad with a picture of a truck dumping fill near an undisclosed body of water. This photo so infuriated the top brass of Smart Centres that their legal team was immediately mobilized to force a full page retraction. The pictures on this blog clearly illustrate that if a photographer approached the Smart Centre property today, by canoe for instance, from the bloated estuary, with a 400 millimeter lens and an obliging dump truck was unloading on the existing pre-loading pile: you would be able to capture the offending photograph – down to the last detail. I find it ironic and somewhat amusing that a big business could bludgeon a small town newspaper with impunity – for a photograph whose art imitates real life.
