Oyster.com's Photo Fakeouts


From Andrew Adam Newman's September 22, 2011 New York Times story: "A regular feature, Photo Fakeouts, contrasts promotional photos from hotels with photos taken from the same perspective by Oyster reviewers. The promotional photo for the beach at the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, for example, shows just a few beachgoers and about a dozen unoccupied chairs, while the Oyster.com photo shows a beach packed with chairs and vacationers."




and below,


samples of the feature.


Fair warning: there goes the day.

"McGilchrist's Greek Islands"


Wrote Stephen Heyman in the September 25 New York Times T Magazine: "'McGilchrist's Greek Islands' ($164.25 for the set; $15 each) is a refreshingly stodgy, 20-volume guide to every corner of the Aegean, written by a classics scholar more interested in funerary urns than in how to get a rezzie at the Nobu on Mykonos."
