Late yesterday, friend of the show and Observer contributor Dylan Hollingsworth posted to Facebook the photo you see above; a second followed a little later, and it's after the jump. He offered no explanation for either, only a title: "Oh, Christmas Tree." And the date: December 2011.
But the site of the shot looked familiar. I asked Dylan if it was taken in the shadow of Medieval Times on Stemmons, just across the freeway from Unfair Park HQ. It was, he said, just yesterday. (The photo after the jump, of course, clearly identifies the site of the shoot.)

Friends of Unfair Park may recall: Back in June 2010 Patrick Michels met and spent a long while with Rusty Shotwell, who, at that time, had lived in the drainage tunnel for some three years. Justin Timberlake's favorite photographer confirms: It was Rusty who put out the Christmas tree.
