The concept of teaching the alphabet through environment-related words (in this case, including newsstand, rooftop and vendor) is not new, and both the captions -- ""Buildings and skylights/ Windows and rows./ Who's behind them?/ Nobody knows"" -- and well composed but muddy photos fail to communicate any flesh viewpoint of the familiar cityscape.
