Photo a Day 37
With all the uproar over tanning and skin cancer, you'd think a sign promoting indoor tanning beds would have long been consigned to the garbage heap. But no, they must still be a viable business despite the constant barrage of negative publicity and bylaws restricting their use to only certain age groups. Although I've never considered using a tanning salon, working out in the sun or getting a tan on vacation has never been a source of worry. At least, I don't have to worry about insufficient Vitamin D levels from living in the basement.
When I took the photo, either the owner or an employee became visibly upset and hustled over to the main door to silently express their concern over my taking a picture. Maybe they thought I was about to report them to the CCS or pen a scathing article in the local paper. Perhaps they'll eventually have to run their operations like a blind pig by only responding to secret knocks on the back door with a little slider to view the customer before allowing entry. :)
