An Indian named Mario.
House sale gathers momentum: the board is up, ads have appeared in the local paper and on the internet, and a few people have been through the house. The agent, a Vietnamese man named Daniel, calls them clients. His photographer, an Indian man named Mario, used a wide-angle lens to photograph the house, yard and rooms. The photos looked funny when I first saw them because they made our modest-sized house look almost palatial, even the laundry! For a while I thought the lens was "dishonest" but now realise it has just stretched the truth a little.
