Thematic Photographic 78: "Different" v.6.0 - Well That Bites

This is the little brother of the 60-foot fiberglass shark I featured in Thematic Photographic 63: "Big" a while back. I'd have to call this a "different" approach to marketing. I mean would you shop for beach supplies at a place that had a giant shark's mouth for a door? Personally? I don't want that much of a reminder that I'm sharing an ocean with fish that can swallow me whole. Maybe the idea was to scare you off the beach and into the store, but I gotta wonder how many small children have been traumatized by the decor here.
