The photohunter theme this week is advertisement. It's very common in my part of the world to see an advertisement on the side or back of a van. The first shot was taken of a van parked outside the office building where my dermatologist is located and the second was take of the side of a van parked in my neighborhood. I think both are pretty effective as an advertisement for their respective businesses.
The shot below is filled with advertisements. There is an advertisement for the Durham School of the arts on the left hand side (the school itself is further left but not shown). There is an advertisement for a business on the back of the white van on the right. The name on the side of the building on the right serves as an advertisement to advise that Durham County Social services are housed within the building.
If you click inside and enlarge the photo below it will be easier to see the sign which serves as an advertisement for the business and the artwork on the building further serves to advertise that garden and agricultural supplies are available within.A common form of advertisement is to have a recognizable logo. The big D with a bull jumping through it is the logo for the Durham Bulls baseball team. The shot below was taken Monday at the old ball field where part of the movie Bull Durham was shot. The team has a new baseball stadium a mile or so away where they currently have their games.
Bulls are popular in Durham. The bull below is in downtown Durham and I believe is an advertisement for a restaurant whose name is a nod towards the Durham bulls but I took the shot in passing and didn't stop to investigate.To visit other photohunters, please go to the home of the Photohunt.
