Photo or illo? I suppose it doesn't matter. Anyway, what a thrill! I have that very same lightswitch in my apartment, and goodness, there it is on today's Times op-ed page! I hope it doesn't get too uppity from all the attention. Seriously, couldn't anyone think of a more interesting image or treatment for this piece? Contributor John Fulbrook has a long and impressive track record as an editorial designer and I hesitate to question his judgement, but this is a perfect example of a pic that would be great paired with the right title text (as in a book jacket or magazine cover) and just looks like nuthin' by itself.
