Shark Week August 2-8

Only tangentially related to Silver Spring, MD (because Discovery Channel is headquartered there) but I found this ad for the upcoming Shark Week amusing. I never would have thought of comparing elevator buttons to shark's teeth, I guess that is why I am not in advertising.

Watch this space

This is the future home of the downtown Silver Spring, MD library. Not much to look at now, but this unassuming corner of Wayne Avenue and Fenton Street will one day house a multi-story library. They still haven't decided if there will be a skywalk over Wayne Ave to the garage across the street. This photo was taken on July 7, 2009.
